3.Ostriches skeletons and fossils have been found which date back over 120 million years; ostriches are a true dinosaur.
4.Ostriches produce the strongest commercially available leather in the world and some of the most beautiful feathers.

10.Ostrich farming is one of the most open, free range farming alternatives available anywhere in the world today. On average, a trio of ostriches require about two thirds of an acre (0.25 hectares) to breed and run around in.
Ostrich eggs is deemed to be the biggest egg in the world.
If you can see clearly, I've compared the egg to a 20cent coin. See the difference?!
Another way of comparing this egg is with the smallest bird egg which the Bee Hummingbird. You can actually place 4700 bee hummingbird's egg into ONE OSTRICH EGG!
Another fun fact of The Giant Vs. The Tiny!
Ostrich Egg - 3.3pounds
Bee Hummingbird Egg - 0.2ounce.
I even stepped on top of the egg and well, nothing happened!
Think I've made it clear on how "sturdy" this egg is!
At Jelita Ostrich Farm, they allowed us to ride on the ostrich.
Thats me trying to get onto the largest bird on earth...If you see closely, their eyes are actually covered with a piece of cloth.
The reason this is done is because if the ostrich cannot see where it is going, it will not speed...This is important as the fastest speed of this gigantic bird is at 45mph.
Formula One Race Track for the Ostrich...!
Well, here the Ostrich birds eyes are not covered and they can go pretty fast....The trick for riding them is just hold on to their feathers and bend backwards to balance yourself.
