I was confused by: "They need to have their heads rotated multiple times in a day," so I googled it. Fun Fact should read: "They need to have their eggs rotated multiple times in a day," Since an ostrich uses its head to dig a hole to lay its eggs, then to rotate its eggs, it only appears that its head is often buried in the ground.

I worked the recent Census in the middle of the city, kept feeling like someone was staring at me, finally saw the head of an ostrich staring over a 7 foot fence at me.

In the last statement, DOD you mean to say the eggs. Or does their head need to be rotated?

Darlene Davidson, The bird can grow to 9ft. How can their legs range between 10 - 16 feet? Legs popular???

L Lh Adams, Thank you. I do not know why these tests and informational articles do not go through review. It could certainly be corrected in that process. Christine, James's wife

#3-- Does anyone have a clue about legs ranging around 10 and 16 feet? Is that how far their stride is? Who knows? Thank you, Christine, James's wife

And it is the male who broods the eggs while the females go off and enjoy themselves, though he does have multiple 'wives'.
