- Ostrich can live up to 70 years (Wow that's a long time)
- Ostrich can run 70 kilometres an hour (40 mph) and maintain that speed for 15 minutes at a time (Could you imagine chasing after your toddler at that speed?)
- Ostrich have three pairs of eyelids, two toes and one toenail.
Our day was perfect; the sun was shining, a slight breeze in the air and the ostriches were waiting at every turn of the tractor. With the help of our tour guide, we learned about the three types of breeder; the African Black, the Blue, and the Red, we fed the teenagers; who are only a year old, and looked in on the 3 week old babies in the nursery.
But wait that's not all...
Many of our momstown mamas feasted on ostrich burgers, Yummy! And our little ones enjoyed a delicious ice cream cone.
Next month momstown Milton is heading to Lowville Park for our Jungle Exploration, Brantford Twin Valley Zoo, and Kelso Beach. If you are interested in learning more about momstown Milton's events, playgroups, and more, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or milton.momstown.ca
