Rheas. These flightless birds used to be hunted down in Chile and caught with "bolas", two heavy stone balls joined by a thong. A rider held one stone in his hand, then spun the other round, releasing the bolas to fly at the rheas' legs and wrap themselves round them. Original artwork for illustration on p7 of Look and Learn issue no 939 (19 January 1980).
