Common Name: Emu
Latin Name: Dromaius novaehollandiae
About: Rodney was one of 3 baby Emus surrendered to a rescue centre that we work closely with. They lived happily for about 18 months, however once they all began to reach maturity Rodney was excluded and bullied.
Normally the animals never leave the safety of the rescue centre, but it was decided that Rodney should be re-homed to improve his quality of life.
He is currently living here with us until his new home is ready for him. Once there he will be integrated into a much larger group of Emus so that he will always have some company.
Rodney is very tame and enjoys a good back scratch.
He currently lives with a couple of ducks and some wallabies for company.
