Ostrich

The savannah’s watchful eye

The ostrich keeps a watchful eye on the savannah, with other animals benefitting greatly from its vigilance. While most birds have four toes on each foot, the ostrich has only two, despite being the world’s biggest bird. With its long, powerful legs, he
runs at speeds of up to 70 km/h. When the male sinks down on its legs, beats its wings alternately and makes spiralling movements
with its long neck, it is doing so to gather a harem. Look at the ostrich’s toes. Does it have one or two toes on each foot?
