The ostrich is the largest living bird species on Earth and is related to cassowaries and rheas. Ostriches cannot fly and instead walk over the ground seeking all varieties of small animals and fruits to eat.

The ostriches are not currently visible to guests as we build them a new-and-improved habitat during construction of Grand New View. Don’t worry: The ostriches aren’t going anywhere! They’re still here receiving superior care. Look for them with the opening of our all-new African savanna in late 2019!
