This animal from Oceania is famous for being easily stressed by and for getting violent with people, other animals and inanimate objects such as glass and cars. The last fatal attack on a person, however, occurred in 1926. Most attacks usually are related to search for food or encounters with humans amidst the bird's territory.
A curious feature about this animal is its protruding crestal bone, which ornithologists found out that can be used to open way through dense forests when escaping. They have solitary habits, hiding during the day in clenched shrubs and moving more in the twilight. Despite their great size, they can run pretty fast, swim very well and jump up to 1m high. So watch out for its kung-fu style kicks if you ever happen to get near a cassowary!
