Cassowaries are also masters of the evil glare. I've been fascinated with them ever since I heard one booming at a zoo. It sounded like a drum. They're considered to be the most dangerous bird on earth, and I see them being described as "murderous", "Australia's velociraptor", and "the Terminator bird". Here's a fun article on the awfulness of death by cassowary: http://io9.gizmodo.com/the-absolute-wor ... -638534080

The Potoo bird doesn't look angry. It just looks weird.

I like that! Potoo... Can you keep them in captivity?

I don't really know, but the internet is giving me the impression that potoos are generally not kept in captivity, and would be hard to take care of because they're nocturnal.

The original caption for the picture said they were babies and I didn't check it out. The small chicks have different plumage, but the internet is indicating that older juveniles have this look. Ostriches go through three plumage stages as they grow, and the baby, juvenal and adult plumage are all distinct from each other. The juvenal stage looks more like the adult stage than the baby stage.
