    I guess they were put off display somewhere in 2019 or 2020.

    I went to Faunaland in 2019 and they still had the cassowary. It was never put off display.

    At first I thought it was a dwarf cassowary since it was smaller than the cassowaries I usually see

    They acquired the cassowaries when they were young as far as I can remember.

    Oh ya, I'm sorry I forgot about that thread. All this school assignment makes me hard to concentrate at other stuff lately.
