Photos of the day – Ostrich

Captures for today is the ostrich which is originally a native of Africa . Among the many interesting facts about these wonderful flightless birds, ostriches are supposed to be the fastest two legged runners .It is said they run up to 45 plus miles / 72.5 plus km s per hour which is faster than a lion or hyena.The size of their eyes running 2 inches horizontally are bigger than their brain .

Ostrich at the Asheboro North Carolina zoo was happy to pose for a picture 🙂
Ostriches have strong legs, a kick from an ostrich can even kill a lion ! Their eggs can be up to a size of medium cantaloupe and by weight equivalent to 24 chicken eggs:)
