Struthio is a genus of bird in the order Struthioniformes. There are two living species, the common ostrich and the Somali ostrich.

There are ten known species from this genus, of which eight are extinct. Several additional fossil forms are ichnotaxa (that is, classified according to the organism’s trace fossils such as footprints rather than its body) and their association with those described from distinctive bones is contentious and in need of revision pending more good material.[2]

The species are:

The earliest fossils of ostrich-like birds are Paleocene taxa from Europe.[5] Palaeotis and Remiornis from the Middle Eocene and unspecified ratite remains are known from the Eocene and Oligocene of Europe and Africa. These may have been early relatives of the ostriches but their status is questionable, and they may in fact represent multiple lineages of flightless paleognaths.[5][6]

Random information on the term “EMU”:

Emu Bay (known as Maxwell from 1882 to 1941) is a locality in the Australian state of South Australia on the north coast of Kangaroo Island located about 124 kilometres (77 mi) south-west of the state capital of Adelaide and about located about 13 kilometres (8.1 mi) west of the municipal seat of Kingscote.[1]

It is a small town of 97 allotments[citation needed] with an even mix of permanent and holiday homes. The town has no shops or mains water supply. Emu Bay is known as a popular swimming beach, and is one of few on Kangaroo Island where vehicles are permitted.[citation needed]

A small jetty dates to 1918. Originally 109 metres (358 ft) long, it allowed ketches such as Karatta to tie up to load cargoes, while a nearby fresh water well serviced horses which pulled wagons down to the bay.[8] Until the 1930s, grain, stock and merchandise were taken to and from Kangaroo Island from this jetty.[9]

Emu Bay is also the location of an unusual geological formation named Emu Bay shale.[citation needed]
