The second heaviest bird in the world, the cassowary is a territorial creature that can be quite aggressive against any other birds it encounters. It will make a brief exception for mating, though as soon as the eggs are laid, the mating pair are quick to separate again. It is the male however who stays behind, watching over the emerald green eggs for several months, even though they might not all be his.
