The drive from Chapada dos Guimaráes to Elephant Sanctuary Brazil is about an hour and a half, which means that sometimes you look to find interesting things out the window. On this particular day, Scott saw these rheas out the window and decided to take a quick video. The rheas seemed to be unimpressed by both the rain and their roadside companions, but were still a lovely sight nonetheless.

Now there’s something you don’t see every day. They look to be 5 or 6 feet tall. Thanks!

Hello ESB; this IS really cool! Tell me, are these birds native to the area? Are the birds eating up critters disturbed by the harvest? Thank you for sharing this with us! Cheers, from British Columbia, Canada.

they are native to the area. as far as what they’re eating, we don’t know. but you can often see them in the corn fields.
