Image Description: These three talking ostriches are hanging out together in the zoo pen. Maybe there is a tour group close by catching their attention, or maybe a group of young children. Because ostriches are the largest land birds on Earth, they also have the biggest eyes and can see predators (or tourists) from a great distance. While this picture only shows three cackling ostriches, they usually live in nomadic groups of five to 50. Ostriches can grow up to 320 lbs and are usually about nine feet tall. We may not think of an ostrich as a commercially grown bird, but they are farmed around the world; their feathers for dusters, skin for leathers, and even their meat is thought to be very delicious.
