    Yep, ostriches don’t have much brain power…hence the urban myth is when danger is approaching, they stick their heads in a hole in the ground… ;)

    You are right. There must be a shortage of ostrich’s as I have never seen one running wild in the 50 years that I lived in northern California.

    On a quiz show I watched a while back, there was a question about which bird is mistakenly believed to stick its head in the ground. One bright young thing answered “flamingo”, another said “penguin”.

    I don’t think they are native except to Africa (so not wild) but they are often raised on farms in the US because valued both for their meat and feathers.

    Alex here is concerned about the ostriches’ feeling about losing that egg. The teacher has to consol her with facts about the ostrich brain size, implying that the ostrich hasn’t the capacity for such thought. Wonder how Alex would feel about human mothers who have nary a care about their young. A human mother has a normal sized brain yet can have very much the same level of concern about their children as an ostrich has over their eggs. Actually the human mother can be worse than an ostrich because at least an ostrich won’t try to kill their young.

    Some people don’t have anything else to do….
    Ostriches can lay a bunch of eggs, like chickens. There have been at least 12 chicks in a family. You don’t want to get between a parent and a chick..
