The world’s largest & heaviest flightless ostrich is right here in Birds Park @ RFC. You would be awe-stuck of its long neck, prominent eyes, and sweeping eyelashes, as well as its jolting walk. Though they cannot fly, ostriches are strong runners. Its long, thick, and powerful legs can cover great distances without much effort, and its feet have only two toes for greater speed.
Native to Africa, Ostriches are found in Savanna and desert regions. Ostriches are born to run as they can sprint up to 43 miles an hour and run over distance at 31 miles an hour. They are highly clever in their mechanism as they use their wings as an aid to control speed to change direction while running. An ostrich’s powerful, long legs works as formidable weapons. They are high energetic birds & their kick can kill a human or a potential predator like a lion.
Self-defendant Ostrich lie low and press its long neck to the ground in an attempt to become less visible. Their plumage blends well with sandy soil and, from a distance, gives the appearance that they have buried their heads in the sand. Ostriches typically eat plants, roots, and seeds but will also eat insects, lizards, or other creatures available in their sometimes harsh habitat. Ostrich can tolerate high temperatures and go without water for long periods of time.
When danger threatens, ostriches can escape pretty easily by running away. To self experience the nature of ostrich, Visit RFC & Spend more time with our prestigious Ostriches & you would certainly say, Amazing Meet with Ostrich in RFC!
