We’re delighted to announce that we have added 2 new birds to our collection.
2 x 5 year old female Ostrich.
The ostrich or common ostrich (Struthio camelus) is either one or two species of large flightless birds native to Africa, the only living member(s) of the genus Struthio, which is in the ratite family. In 2014, the Somali ostrich (Struthio molybdophanes) was recognized as a distinct species.
It is distinctive in its appearance, with a long neck and legs, and can run at up to about 70 km/h (19 m/s; 43 mph),the fastest land speed of any bird.
The common ostrich is the largest living species of bird and lays the largest eggs of any living bird.
They are also the only ‘Dangerous wild animal’ on public display in the whole of East Yorkshire, one step closer to becoming Bridlington zoological park in 2019
