The ostrich is a rather strange bird, and there are many interesting and peculiar things about it, but it does not hide its head in the sand!
What may have given people this idea is that when an ostrich is frightened, it will sometimes drop to the ground, stretch out its neck, and lie still and watch intently. But when the danger comes closer, the ostrich does just what other animals do, it takes off and runs. When the ostrich is exhausted and cannot run any further, or if it must defend its nest, it kicks with its powerful legs.
So, be careful guys! Haha
