Meet the Ostrich
Ostriches are large flight-less birds, and are the heaviest living birds on Earth. They also lay the largest eggs of any living land animal. Ostriches are natively found in the wild in Africa.
About the Ostrich
Even though they're flight-less birds, Ostriches have a large wing span that can reach between 6-7 feet. And since they can't fly, it helps that Ostriches are fast runners. With their long legs, they have been known to cover more than 10 feet in a single stride. Ostriches have several natural predators, including cheetahs, lions, leopards, hunting dogs and spotted hyenas.
