Ask a ten year old what the largest bird in the world is and the chances are you will get the right answer - the ostrich. Asked about the second largest and the odds are still very good that they will be able to name the Emu. Go for third place in the size league and you may well start to get blank looks from all but the keenest young ornithologist. The answer is the Soutern Cassowary - and not only is it endangered but is also classified as the world's most dangerous bird.
From the article:-
The Southern Cassowary may not be as much of a household name as its cousins the Ostritch and the Emu, but even though it is classified as "only" the third largest bird on the planet it has a less welcome claim to fame. Take a look at officially the most dangerous bird on the planet.
