My animal for this project, in which I have to splice myself with an animal, is a Dromaius novaehollandiae which is an emu. When I found out what animal I had I was nervous as to how to approach the project. The initial reaction was shock, I suppose, as I couldn't really see any potential. But after looking into them, I have found out that they are very tall (reaching 6,6 ft in height), are flightless birds and although their legs are thin they are very strong. They are also brown and soft-feathered.
