Ostriches   

1     Ostriches deserve the title of the world's largest birds. They stand up to nine feet tall. They weigh more than 300 pounds. Aside from their impressive height and weight, ostriches are also the record holders in many other areas. 2     Native to Africa, ostriches like to travel in small groups across the grassland to search for food. They mainly feed on leaves, roots, flowers, and seeds. Sometimes, they eat small lizards and insects, too.
 
3     When we see a group of ostriches, we can easily tell which one is male and which one is female. Male ostriches wear black outfits with white feathers on their wings and tails. Female ostriches do not wear such pretty dresses - their feathers are dull, grayish brown.
