How awesome was the Cassowary sequence on last nights episode of Seven Worlds One Planet!?
It still boggles me that I was lucky enough to encounter one of these bloody amazing birds out in the wild. I was on a tour of the Daintree Rainforest last December and we stopped in a forest car park to marvel at the Alexandra Range Lookout. It’s from here you take in the view of where Steve Irwin, sadly, undertook his final adventure in the sea below.
As I was walking back to the bus I had the shock of my life, there, only 10 yards in front of me was a bloomin huge Cassowary guzzling down fruit from a nearby tree!
I watched the Cassowary for maybe 10 minutes before he slunk away back into the dense forest. Unreal!
