This flightless bird is native to Africa.
The ostrich’s long neck and legs help them to not only run to up to 45 mph but to also produce powerful kicks that can seriously injury predators. An ostrich’s acute hearing and vision allow them to sense things that are far away. They are the largest of the bird species.
