  • Amazing Facts About the Ostrich
The flightless ostrich is the world’s largest bird.
Ostriches have three stomachs.
Unlike all other living birds, the ostrich secretes urine separately from faeces.
Ostriches are the fast runners of any birds or other two-legged animal and can sprint at over 70 km/hr, covering up to 5m in a single stride.
Ostriches’ running is aided by having just two toes on each foot (most birds have four), with the large nail on the larger, inner toe resembling a hoof.
Ostriches’ wings reach a span of about 2 metres and are used in mating displays, to shade chicks, to cover the naked skin of the upper legs and flanks to conserve heat, and as “rudders” to help them change direction while running.
When threatened ostriches run although their powerful, long legs can be formidable weapons, capable of killing a human or a potential predator like a lion with a forward kick.
Ostriches normally spend the winter months in pairs or alone and during breeding season and sometimes during extreme rainless periods they live in nomadic ‘herds’ of five to 50 birds led by a top hen, that often travel together with other grazing animals, such as zebras or antelopes.
Territorial fights between males for a harem of two to seven females usually last just minutes, but they can easily cause death through slamming their heads into opponents.
Ostriches perform a complex mating ritual consisting of the cock alternating wing beats until he attracts a mate, when they will go to the mating area and he will drive away all intruders. They graze until their behaviour is synchronized, then the feeding becomes secondary and the process takes on a ritualistic appearance. The cock will then excitedly flap alternate wings again, and start poking on the ground with his bill. @mwanga_adventure

  • I’ve been trying to better understand what it means to relax and unplug. I spend so much time going and moving and doing that decompressing and spending time just “being” feels wrong. That’s probably why my favorite part of our honeymoon was our safari, especially the Serengeti. Chilling on the beach in Zanzibar was undoubtedly amazing, and I’ve come home feeling so refreshed and inspired... but I’m not sure whether I feel that way because I relaxed or because this adventure Chris and I went on together gave me this rush and excitement and put this new little spark of life inside of me. Maybe it’s a little bit of both?

I took over 2,100 photos while we were there (🤯😱), so here’s a little sneak peek of some of my favorites so far as I sort through them all!

  • #tbt to the most surreal trip yet and just going with the flow. whether it was jumping off the top of a dhow ship into the indian ocean, sleeping in a tent in the serengeti; listening to lions and hyenas right outside, game drives & elephants so close they tried to stick their trunk in the window, snorkeling off a sand bar off the coast of zanzibar or getting on not one but 2 separate tiny ass planes... it sure was #oneforthebooks. 😂🤷🏻‍♀️😂 #safari. #tanzania. #serengeti. #life. #wanderlust. #bucketlist. #hakkunamatata.
