"All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Go"
The Ostrich (Struthio camelus) is the largest of all living birds. It is flightless and has vestigial wings, but no keel (breastbone). It is also the only living bird with only 2 toes. It lives in open arid country in Central and East Africa. It is usually found among groups of wildebeest, antelope, and zebra in what is a mutually beneficial alliance. The hooves of the mammals stir up insects and rodents for the ostrich and the ostrich warns of approaching danger. It can run as fast as 30-40 miles per hour.
