Hybrid Cassowary
This is a rare find, but proof that the Single Wattles and Double Wattles cross breed in the wild. None have ever been bred in captivity due to the rarity of captive breeding programs, particularly with the Single Wattles. Therefore it is not known wether hybrids such as this one could reproduce, or if they are a mule. More than likely they can reproduce, and it would explain the diversity of cassowaries physical characteristics and their colorations.
