Where do emus and cassowaries live?

Emus and cassowaries both live in Australia, while the cassowary is also found on the island of New Guinea.

Emus can be found in a wide range of habitats across the Australian mainland, but not in Tasmania. They are even found on the outskirts of urbanised areas and in country towns. They range from undeveloped coastal areas to the sub-Alpine regions; from the edge of wetlands to agricultural areas. They are most common in New South Wales, in open scrubland and grasslands.

The Southern cassowary lives in the rainforests of coastal northern Queensland, Australia, as well as in tropical rainforests of Papua New Guinea, and the Aru and Seram Islands. It is found in Cape York, in the vine forests of Lockerbie and McHenry Uplands, the vine forests of the McIlwraith and Iron Ranges, and in the Wet Tropics, from Big Tableland, south of Cooktown to Paluma, north of Townsville. The Northern cassowary, also known as the Golden-neck Cassowary, is found in the tropical rainforests of the island of New Guinea.

The adult cassowary has no natural predators. Its eggs have predators such as lizards and white rats.

The biggest danger to the Cassowary today is introduced species such as domestic and wild dogs. eral pigs destroy their nests and compete with the cassowary for food. The greatest threat comes from Man, who has destroyed much of the cassowary's habitat, and whose cars are also responsible for many cassowary deaths.
