    ***WHC IX 2nd round: game 8***

    The last tie of round two and it is, in my opinion, a corker. Former champ against a beast with a significant and vocal support base.

    Cassowary

    WHC IX performance:

    Group C: 3rd 18 votes(12.59%)

    The cassowary is the only bird in this competition that can hold its own with the big boys. Generally shy it will go mental if fully provoked. Launching a jumping attack on you, it will look to eviscerate you with its five inch long dagger like middle claw. If you are on the receiving end of the attack you'll know all about it as the Cassowaries legs are extremely powerful and the dagger toe is razor sharp.

    The Hippo is a former champion who will give anyone a run for their money and is always a threat. If he was smaller he'd have far greater popularity. As it is he is the third largest land mammal on earth-massively built and prodigiously strong- although they are equally happy in water. Despite being mostly herbivorous and not especially territorial they are very, very aggressive and unpredictable beasts. They will attack anything- lions, crocodiles, boats just for the heck of it. Because of this they are not only feared by humans but by all the other animals who co-habit with it. They all give the hippo a wide berth because they know what will happen to them if the hippo is feeling a little grouchy.

      Cassowary. FAR more head mental.

      I'd love to see Cassowary get through. Both are belligerent in the extreme but Cass wins out for me by appearing to be permanently pissed off about anything and indeed everything and expressing it's inner turmoil by doing it's best to smash/ gouge the living shit out of it.
      Think of how stupid the average person is....
      ........and realise half of them are stupider than that.

      I would pay good money to see a cassowary and a honey badger have a fight .... and I'm a pacifist.

      This. The Cassowary is the kid everyone knew at school, who'd suddenly go MENTAL and cave someone's face in just because he could.

      Actually, i think its the other way round. The Hippo is the one that attacks for no reason and causes maximum damage. The Cassowary only attacks when cornered/frightened. It's threatened by dogs...dogs are the number one threat to cassowaries. It just looks a bit mental whereas the hippo actually is a bit of a headcase, attacking apex predators and passing boats for fun.

      #TeamCass - the mentalist bird on the planet. As I said in the previous round, it's like a menopausal woman - you just never know when it's going to go mad. Nice one minute, the next you're ripped apart for no good reason.

      This shouldn't even be a contest.

      Silly bird vs a fecking HIPPO!

      Hippo all day long. Even Crocs keep well out the way of those bad boys.
