Do you have a pet emu? While emus are more uncommon in the US, in their native Australia, they are often raised as pets. Such was the case of Sue and her pet emu.
From the video below, you can see her pet emu is still quite young by size. As a benchmark, adult emus are about five to six feet tall! The best part? You have to see what it does when it interacts with the family dog.
Emus are known to be territorial, but if they are in another animal's territory they will usually concede "ownership" rather than fight. That may be what happened with the dog in the video below.
The moment the dog walks in, the baby emu drops to the ground, like so:
The emu begins rolling around, seemingly uncontrollably.
Meanwhile, the dog looks like he's trying to mind its own business by walking around the emu.
The emu follows suit very closely.
Nothing beats watching this interaction live! Be sure to check out the video below, and don't forget to share this story. What do you think the emu is thinking?
