#AtoZChallenge: Ostrich – Did You Know…

Ostrich or Emu… not really sure…

… That an ostrich’s eye is bigger than it’s brain? If you look at them you can kind of imagine that this must be the case. The eyes are really big…

Here’s another little fact, a very private one: The Emu is the Australian ostrich if you want so. It’s the one animal that freaks me out. I don’t like them. And when we are visiting our favorite Wildlife Park I’m happy to hold a snake but I really don’t like it when the Emu’s approach me, staring at me with their big beaks ready to do damage and then they do that “cluckcluck” sound… Each time Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds” comes to my mind…

  2. Ok…if we are ever in the position where there are snakes and emus around…you deal with the snakes and I’ll make friends with the emu. Deal? I think it’s important to have a plan in place. πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰

  3. Ostrich do have a cute, odd look about them, don’t they?! I imagine they could be fierce if frightened or roused. You definitely wouldn’t want to be bitten by one. Geese have attacked me before, if I get too close, and they can be down right scary. Found you through the A to Z Challenge. http://www.dianeweidenbenner.com
