A long-running question about how the largest species of birds achieve erect penises seems to have been settled. In a study published this week in the Journal of Zoology 1researchers report that male ostriches and emus enlarge their penises using a burst of lymphatic fluid rather than a blood vascular system like that found in reptiles and mammals. Ostriches and emus are members of the ratites, a group of flightless birds that also includes rheas and kiwis.
Emus Dromaius novaehollandiae are found exclusively in Australia and inhabits nearly the entire continent. Lower densities exist along the eastern coast and toward the center of the island. The number of individuals varies around , and is dependent on the seasonal rains.

Michael Pickerel, 47, a technology specialist with the university who also operated a private security company, was initially being investigated by the U. Department of Labor for allegedly failing to pay his employees in when investigators discovered a series of hidden camera videos in a Google Drive account he used to save business records, according to federal court records in the fraud case. The pair were unaware they were being recorded, according to federal investigators.
