    Default Emu chick at Berlin zoo

    The Berlin zoo's newest addition is this emu chick, born last week and seen walking with its father. It's not just a coincidence that it's in the company of its male parent -- emu fathers do all the "child"-rearing and even handle egg-incubation duties. While they're sitting on the eggs, they scarcely move -- even to eat -- and can lose up to a third of their total body weight. Emu mothers take no part in the care of chicks.
    Emus are the world's second-largest bird (behind the ostrich) and are native to Australia. When this chick is an adult, it's likely to weigh about 100 pounds, stand 5 to 6 feet tall and be able to run about 30 miles per hour.
