The ostrich is considered the largest bird in the world. They are one of three of the largest birds that cannot fly (the others are the cassowary and the emu). They’re native to Africa. Wild ostriches live mainly in Africa, but ostrich farms exist all over the world. Unfortunately, ostrich feathers are a luxury good, and often used to make feather dusters.
The meat is considered a delicacy in some areas of the world, and its skin is used to create high priced leather goods. Due to this want for ostrich goods, hunting has gone up until farms were established to breed ostriches specifically for this cause and leave wild ostriches somewhat alone. It is also the bird that lays the largest egg in the world.
