Went to go peep some ostriches out at Ostrich Land.
They are the only birds with two toes per foot that can propel them to sustained speeds of 35 mph with bursts to 45 mph.
Ostriches grow a foot per month until they reach 8 or 9 feet tall.
Ostriches have no teeth. They swallow pebbles to help grind the food in their gizzards.
Ostriches are the largest and fastest birds in the world and can weigh as much as 350 pounds and live up to 75 years.
Male ostriches are quite strategic in protecting their colonies. They will feign injury to lure predators away from chicks and females. They will fight when they have to and can kill with one kick. Not even a lion will prey on a healthy mature ostrich.
But these ostriches are not wild. Their meat however is still delicious, comparable to lean beef.
