THE FEARFUL OSTRICH – OR SO THE LEGEND GOES
Pliny the Elder, an ancient Roman philosopher, once wrote that the ostrich, being profoundly
stupid, sticks its head into the sand at the first sign of danger and considers 8.1. itself invisible. Here’s the truth about this magnificent, yet infamously ridiculed bird. Ostriches do
not bury their heads when faced with danger. Any species that did so would 8.2. not ave been able to survive for more than 120 million years. They do,
however, stretch their long necks flat on the ground in the hope that potential predators won’t
spot them. In this position, they can blend in with the terrain. From a 8.3. distance their heads look as if they were buried in the sand. Ostriches have many natural defences,
including their super speed. Endurance isn’t an issue for these birds, either. They can sprint at
a brisk 30 miles per hour for a full 10 miles straight, if needed. It is surprising that we think of
them 8.4. as timid or fearful.
