About Tooh, the southern cassowary:

The cassowary is the closest existing animal to the dinosaurs, both in appearance and other similarities. They are the second largest birds on earth, after the ostrich, but the most dangerous. They have powerful legs with claws that enable it to attack with kicks at high speed. The bright colours on their neck and head change depending on their mood. 

The southern cassowary doesn't have a tongue, so they use their beak to pick up fruit and other food from the ground and swallow it directly.

 

About Yago, the artist:

Yago Partal (b. 1982, Barcelona) lives and works in Barcelona.

He creates his anthropomorphic images through a painstaking combination of photography, illustration and collage. His intention (in humanising animals) is to make us look again, to see them as "one of us" and not something to be exploited or endangered.

These adorable animals have been featured by Another Magazine, The Huffington PostCBS News and the Wall Street Journal, among others.

Yago has returned to university to study his passion, zoology. The sales from the Zoo Portraits have enabled him to support a number of wildlife charities over the years, and to work with children to educate the next generation about animal conservation. 

Yago Partal is represented by Subject Matter Art, an online fine art gallery based in London. For any questions about his work, please contact kitty@subjectmatterart.com.
