Ostriches Ostriches

Did you know that the ostrich lays the largest egg in the world? If you cracked one to make scrambled eggs for breakfast, you would have enough to feed fifteen people!

Ostriches are the largest living birds. With wings outstretched for balance and feet skimming the surface of the ground, ostriches can run faster than any other two-legged animal. Although they do have wings and are covered with feathers, ostriches are among the few birds that cannot fly. In this book written for younger readers, learn how these huge birds are adapted for survival on the African plains.
