Satire never in his hands degenerated into savagery or scurrility. A moral purpose ever underlaid his humour; he sought to instruct or improve when he amused. Bates will, we hope, pardon us if we say that this is not quite the fact.

They are reputedly dangerous, attacking if cornered or harassed. Emu are ostrich-shaped birds. Although they look shaggy and charred or smutty, their feathers are delicate.
Common throughout Australian grasslands and deserts, they are omnivores and surprisingly opportunistic feeders in picnic areas, and to leave a laden table or grilling meat unattended where emu are about is tantamount to feeding the wildlife. Unlike the cassowary, they are not dangerous to chase off, though it is wise to be careful when approaching creatures kept in enclosures.
