Branding symbol of the city of Tel Aviv
Emblem of the Ganei Yehoshua company Emu
The second largest bird after the ostrich. The Emu also belongs to the ostrich series and like the ostrich, it has no aviation.
The bird has two layers of feathers of the same size and they are close and misaligned on its body. The chicks have a striped feather in black and ceramic brown colors, which allows them to disguise themselves in the thick vegetation. The wings are very small and less than 20 cm long.
During the breeding season, the female mates with more than one male during one mating season. It is the male that incubates alone on the eggs and raises the offspring alone. The Emo runs well, and is capable of developing speeds of up to 50 km / h in times of danger.
The Emo appears on the right side of the Australian emblem facing the kangaroo.
