Southern Cassowary by darkSoul4Life Southern Cassowary by darkSoul4Life
This is one of the Southern Cassowary (Casuarius Casuarius) from the Aachener Tierpark.
The southern cassowary is threatened by the same things like many other animal species. One of the main problem is habitat loss as well as being killed by cars.


Btw who needs an image stabilizer when having 1/60s on 240mm with an aps-c (384mm equivalent)?

Vielen lieben dank :) Nunja ich würd sagen, das lag zum Teil an den leicht bewölkten Himmel den ich hatte, der nur weiches Licht durchkommen lies und ein bisschen Nachbearbeitung (das Horn war leicht überbelichtet).

Der Fokus und der Bildausschnitt sind dir hier wirklich gut gelungen. Das Tier ist zwar nicht unbedingt "schön" im klassischen Sinne, aber doch irgendwie erstaunlich. Die sind auch gar nicht so ungefährlich, oder? ^^

Danke dir. Im klassischen Sinne vielleicht nicht, aber so wie jedes andere Tier hat auch dieser große Vogel etwas faszinierendes. Die können ziemlich gefährlich werden, du musst dir mal deren Krallen ansehen.

Ich halte zwar nicht viel davon, wenn man ein Tier als "teil" bezeichnet, aber das sei dir jetzt mal verziehen. Joa die sehen echt nicht schlecht aus, haben auch eine gewaltige Kralle, mit der die selbst einen Menschen problemlos sehr gefährlich werden können. Was auch besonders toll ist, ist deren sehr tiefe Stimme, ich hab nicht schlecht gestaunt wo ich das zum ersten mal hörte ^^

sry, ich hab die angewohnheit, alles existierende (und nicht existierende) "teil" zu nennen. aber ich muss sagen, das mit der stimme creept mich schon ein wenig an (stell dir nur mal vor, du läufst durch so nen düsteren wald, dann hörst du eine tiefe stimme und das letzte was du siehst sind riesige krallen und der kopf...xD)

I know they are quite dangerous, that's why I do not want to come across one it the wild.
What is it with birds going for eye?

I have no idea why they like to go for the eyes.
