Did you Know? The Wingspan of an Ostrich Is Over Six Feet

ostrich, ostrich facts, fact about ostrich, facts about ostrich, bird facts,

Ostriches have a wingspan of up to 6.6 feet despite not being able to fly. Rather than aiding in flight, these appendages assist birds in maintaining their balance while running or defending themselves against predators. They can also function as rudders, allowing the ostriches to change directions while running. Finally, wings aid ostriches in their courtship displays, which include chasing and dancing to assert dominance over other potential mates.
