An Ostrich (Struthio Camelus) is a very powerful bird and in fact a single kick at a predator could prove to be fatal! e.g. a lion.

The average adult male Ostrich, the world’s largest living bird, weighs up to 156.5kg (345lbs). It is the fastest running bird and has been clocked at 97.5 kph. (60.5 mph.) thus outpacing most predators, such as lions, leopards and hyenas.

The Ostrich has the largest egg of living bird they are approximately 17.8cm (7ins) long. Because of their size and the thickness of their shells, they take about 40 minutes to hard-boil.

The female Ostrich has an extraordinary ability to spot her own eggs even when they get mixed up with eggs of other females in their collective nest.

The Ostrich has one of the most advanced immune systems known to mankind.

Contrary to the popular belief, Ostriches do not hide their head in the sand. They basically stretch out their neck and lay their head on the ground so that they are not seen, which give rise to the myth that Ostriches hide in the sand.

Ostrich is the largest and heaviest living bird in the world. It is unable to fly and belongs to the Ratite family, which literally means flightless.

An Ostrich’s eye is bigger than its brain.

Ostrich race is a popular attraction in Ostrich farms and this large bird is capable of running with a small person mounted on top.

The meat of Ostrich looks similar to beef and is also cooked in almost the same way. The meat is red meat, which is low in cholesterol, calories and is almost fat free.

The hide of an Ostrich provides the strongest commercially available leather in the world and also has some of the most beautiful feathers, which were used in ancient times to decorate ladies’ hats.

Ostriches can be called a true dinosaur since Ostrich skeletons and fossils have been found that date back eons and haven’t really changed much.
