A Family By Itself: The ostrich is in a family by itself — literally. Only one species of ostrich exists and this single species has been placed in a family (Struthionidae) separate from other birds.
The Awkward Ostrich: With its massive body, long, skinny, bare neck, tiny head and small wings relative to its body, the ostrich looks awkward and out of proportion. The ostrich cannot fly, but this bird can run, traveling up to 45 mph for as long 30 minutes.
Shrinking Habitat: Ostriches typically form mixed-sex herds and travel long distances in search of grass and plants for food. At one time the ostrich could be found across Africa and West Asia. Today, their home range has decreased to only eastern and southern Africa.
