About the Ostrich - Struthio camelus

Native to Africa, the ostrich is the world’s largest, flightless birds. They can reach a height of up to 9 feet at maturity and weigh over 300 pounds. The ostrich has long, powerful legs and is the fastest runners of all birds and can reach speeds of over 40 mph. At a full run, their strides can span over 15 feet which allow them to outrun most threats. Another unusual fact is that the ostrich only has two toes, while all other birds have three or four. With its long neck and large eyes covered by long lashes, it’s appearance has been likened to a camel.


Their diet consists of vegetation, seeds, insects, snakes, lizards, and rodents. Ostriches are well adapted to life on the savanna in southern and central Africa. They can withstand hot temperatures and go for extended periods of time without water, getting enough moisture from the plants they eat.


Ostriches usually live in groups of about ten, with a dominant male and female as leaders. They are often found grazing among herds of antelopes and zebras. The dominant male has a loud warning call that can be mistaken for a lion’s roar. Ostriches will also hiss to show their disapproval.


A group of ostriches will lay their eggs, the world’s largest, in a communal nest. In the wild, they can live to 40 years old. While native to Africa, the ostrich is now raised in many places around the world for both their meat and feathers.
