My Rhea Guard Dog

Rhea bird in the rhatite family from South Africa

I just got my first Rhea eggs in the mail (I like to paint and dye them for my art work) and couldn’t help but think what perfect guard dogs these birds would be.

Look at the size of the eggs.

Can’t you picture a couple of these birds in your front yard to protect you against the mailman? :D
