Australia Highway May Receive Emu Underpass


The country already has underpasses for koalas and reptiles so that they don’t need to cross roads with fast moving traffic, and possums even have their own rope bridges suspended above some roads, but emus could be the next animal to get this special treatment. Of course, emu underpasses will need to be much taller than the existing ones as the birds can reach up to two metres tall. Some wildlife experts are also worried that the birds might not be smart enough to use the underpasses even if they are built, saying that they are a bit dim.
