Stuff  Your Never Knew About The Ostrich

  • Ostrich eyes are bigger than billiard balls! They also happen to be bigger than the birds brain which may be the reason why some ostriches (sometimes) run around in a circle on the spot, when trying to get away from a predator.
  • Their legs make up most of their impressive 300lbs body weight and with a sharp claw on each foot; these birds are able to and have been known to kill predators including lions and humans. You have been warned.
  • Ostriches get most of their water from the plants they eat.
  • One giant ostrich egg weighs as much as 24 chicken eggs.
  • Each ostrich foot has two toes and a four-inch-long claw, the claw gives it traction when running and also doubles as a deadly weapon.
