Critter lovers... this one is for you. Big Bird's cousins are here to delight and hoot at you.
Graceful long necks and big blinking eyes... They are definitely funny.
Some Ostrich Facts for you to ponder.
- Adults weigh 250-350 Lbs.
- They are vegetarians that breed until they are over 40 years old with the oldest know living ostrich a venerable 80+.
- They can run 45 mph, only have two toes,
- They lay 40-60 eggs a year, each weighing 2-4 Lbs....
- AND THEY DO NOT bury their heads in the sand.
What is the difference between an Ostrich and an EMU? (quiz for you!).
A big thank you to OstrichlandUSA in Solvang, california for letting us play with their birds
(and you thought we went all the way to Africa to shoot this!)
