Hide and Seek (not very successful though!)


This rhea obviously does not get the full concept of hide and seek.

These flightless birds are native to Southern America, however, a small group managed to escape a wildlife park in Northern Germany near Lübeck in the late 1990s and have done well in their new found freedom. The population has double in size and they have even moved into other areas. Unfortunately local farmers are less impressed as the birds eat the rape seeds and trample the plants.
