The Cassowary – the most dangerous bird in the world

Meet one of the most dangerous creatures in the wild… and, guess what, it’s a bird!

Meet the cassowary and it sure can kick ass!

They are capable of dealing fatal blows to humans and other animals with their sharp and mighty claws.

They have put people in hospitals on numerous occasions and there have been many reports of people getting killed by a cassowary attack.

The Guinness Book of Records say that the cassowaries are the world’s most dangerous birds, very unpredictable, very aggressive, especially if wounded or cornered.

The cassowary, an exotic-looking, territorial bird,  lives in the rain forests of Australia and New Guinea and are actually pretty shy animals if undisturbed, unless they think you are a threat to them.

You’ll see one of them – alive and kicking – inside the Davao Crocodile Farm Roadshow right in Metro-Manila, located inside the Boom-na-Boom complex behind Star City in Pasay City. Also called, “Crocodile Park Manila”, the zoo-like park features bird shows and other animal interactions – a highly-recommended activity for the entire family to enjoy and experience.

And not to worry, the cassowary’s cage is securely built and keeps it from attacking park visitors.

  1. Great images of the cassowary. So aggressive. So beautiful. I find them fascinating. I captured beautifully their glossy feathers and vibrant neck colours. Thanks.
