Do you like to eat omelettes? Well, if you were to eat an omelette made from the egg of an ostrich, chances are that you would need to invite a few friends over to help you finish it.
These birds are definitely no chickens! Ostriches are the tallest birds anywhere, many standing about nine feet tall. Not only are they huge, but these birds, native to Africa, can usually outrun a horse, making them the fastest flightless bird in the world.
Related to the emus and kiwis of Australia and New Zealand respectively, this big bird (no relation to a certain seven foot tall yellow muppet living down Sesame Street way) have thick black and white plumage and powerful legs with which to defend themselves via a nasty when they get cornered. Despite that, ostriches are pretty much pacifists. Even though they’re huge, that doesn’t mean they want to fight; they would rather run away or try to hide themselves by lying down on the ground where they can blend in with surrounding scrub and plants. But that myth about them hiding their head in the sand when they are in danger? It is just that, a myth.
