Did You Know: An Ostrich’s Eye is Bigger than it’s Brain?
Despite the tiny brains, ostriches are big birds. They can weigh between 140 to 290 lbs and their eggs range from 3 to 5 lbs. Ostriches are closely related to dinosaurs, and have similar tissue to a T-Rex.
One thing that’s not true about ostriches is that they don’t bury their heads in the sand when they’re scared. Male ostriches dig large holes with their beaks to make a nest for ostrich eggs. The male and female both tend to the nest regularly by flipping the eggs with their beaks, and they both take turns sitting on the nest.
