Kangaroo Island Emu

Dromaius baudinianus Parker, SA, 1984

Kangaroo Island Emu or Dwarf Emu (Dromaius baudinianus) is an extinct member of the bird family Dromaiidae. It was restricted to Kangaroo Island, South Australia, which was known as Ile Decrés by the members of the Baudin expedition. It differed from the mainland Emu mainly in its smaller size. The species became extinct by about 1827. Source: Wikipedia
