Farm ducks tend to make tolerable pets for some. This duck would not. Bullockornis does, though, have many places that we can learn facts about the genus and share them with kids. It would probably also make for a really interesting stuffed animal, but I haven't looked to see if such exists yet. However, I have seen that About, Prehistoric Wildlife, and even a short blurb from the government of New Zealand (featuring a painting of a different genus) can be found online.
