The Rhea is a large flightless bird native to South America and is part of the family of birds known as Ratites, which includes the Ostrich, Emu, Kiwi and Cassowary. Rheas are often mistaken for Ostriches because they share similar characteristics and grow to an impressive size. The male bird hatches and raises the young. After mating, the male builds a nest and incubates the eggs. Once hatched, he continues to rear the chicks, guarding them from any potential threat for the first six months.
