Jon was heartbroken not to be available when I recently made a trip to the Toledo Zoo. There, I was able to get some great shots of their two Southern cassowaries.
What Jonny loves most about the cassowary are it's large claws at the end of powerful legs. The the middle claw is like a spear, big and sharp enough to gouge a man's neck to the point where he bleeds out from his jugular vein!
However, contrary to Jonny's beliefs, the cassowary is mainly a vegetarian that occasionally eats insects... not human flesh and souls.
Until Jonny's wish comes true to have a cassowary as a pet, he will have to make due with visiting his avian friends at the zoo.
