This flightless bird has a long, bare neck, long, sturdy legs and a bulky body covered with feathers. Males and females have different coloured feathers – males sport black plumage with a white tail, and females are mostly brown. They do use their wings to help with balance as they run. Though you wouldn’t think it to look at them, ostriches can be very dangerous. Their legs are quite powerful, and they have been known to kill lions with a single kick.
