Southern Cassowary (Casuarius casuarius)

Whenever I see "Kevin" from the pixar movie "UP", I think of the Cassowary Bird. It's not an exact match, but the Cassowary is a large and colorful bird. These birds, unlike Kevin, are not noted for their friendly demeanor. Quite the opposite in fact. To quote Wikipedia: The blade-like claws are capable of killing humans and dogs if the bird is provoked.
