This is Hercules. He's an emu! He loves getting sprayed with the hose and swimming in his kiddie pool. He also loves neck scratches.
If you doubt for a second that the baby emu in this photo is more than just literal hours old... well, just look to the left-hand side for irrefutable proof!
Squee lovers, the winners of this week's Squee Spree contest are itty bitty Emu babies! And this particular emu baby has quite a marvelous mugshot here, if I do say so myself!
