  • Coyotoe I have a question for you if you found a real dinosaur what would you do?

  • 1:59 Damn hair

  • Ive seen bigger cassowary’s these birds used to kill humans in new Guinea

  • Every single bird is a living dinosaur.

  • I live in australia so seeing a cassowary is normal for me

  • There are a bunch of these in straya dont come down under

  • i only disliked this video because the beginning is so raunchy

  • It’s pretty though

  • Wasn’t this bird alive when the dinosaurs were here

  • You should do the Shoe bill Stork

  • Clever girl

  • Actually the cassowary is third biggest Dumbnut

  • I thought the emu is the second biggest bird

    • An emu is slightly taller but a cassowary weighs more, he was talking about weight I think.

  • All birds are dinosaurs :P

  • This bird reminded me of the bird from "Up"

  • Crocodiles and alligators are living dinosaurs to

  • That bird weighs more than me... Life's great!

  • find a coelacanth . a ceolacanth is a dinosaur with bony scales that was thought to be extinct and it was actually living. like if you agree

  • I found this video by searching "brave wilderness kiwi bird." I thought the intro and title were a joke.

  • It looks like a giganraptor

  • Those things are terrifying when i was a kid one ran at me and hit a fence full speed when i was walking by i heard later that they can disembowel you

  • The Velociraptors in jurassic Park are very inaccurate tho. The are waaaayyyy to big. They are basically the size of a Utahraptor. Velociraptors were about one meter tall and 2m long.

    • SuckaDuckForaBuck yepp and the Spinosaurus as well. Nothing is really accurate in JP 😅😅😅

    • The T-rex was also pretty inaccurate I'm pretty sure.

  • I think is funny how he's acting so cautious around it while the other dude is calm and petting it

  • We have one of those in our local zoo. This video doesn't really show how majestic that thing looks. If you are facing it it really is like looking at a real life dino in the face. It's kind of handsome bird. It's much more imposing thing than it looks in this video. The way it looks at you feels somehow carnivorous, not herbivorous: it looks at you like you are its next meal.

  • what if it is a rapter

  • what if it is a rapter

  • Its sad that this beautiful bird is endangered

  • Try a shoebill

  • Hmm im mad, you got a nice one. Jokes aside they are BEAUTIFUL!

  • Yes and the angriest bird on the planet! Seriously, EVERYTHING makes them mad! Considering they can hit 61/2 feet, they can kick your...butt! Seriously, im met one in the wild Years ago, Australia on a beach id say we werent supposed to be there but as we were lost....i dont where "there" was! We see this mini dinosaur come out of the trees: Friend: hey look at the size of that bird Me:what the heck is it.. Bird: RAUUGH Then the screaming started.. Ive seen mad birds, but ive never seen one take a right cross(ive actually competed in martial arts and have knocked grown men out with that hit) Bird; yeah, and? Thats the best youve got? Me:...ohhh crap,🤤😨😰🤕

  • Next Coyote Peterson goes to a petting zoo. " Normally in the moutains, I couldn't get this close to a wild goat........"

  • That's a T-rex

  • Emu is 3rd i guess

  • mario lanzas all birds are not dinosaurs only two pigeon and...whats that bird name again that big one
