Excited ostrich by DeeOtter Excited ostrich by DeeOtter
I can't remember if they made any vocalizations, but this ostrich had quite the expression when I walked past.
I've heard their flightless brethren, the emu make a growling noise before.
Scary looking mouths. Not as scary looking as penguins though. Those mouth barbs are something else.

They can hiss. And it's not fun when they try to kill you (by kicking/stomping) - trust me, I would know.

That has to be a terrifying experience. I was already a bit intimidated even if there was a fence between us.

Yeah...it wasn't fun. But not all ostriches are like that (thankfully). We just happen to have one that's crazy, and another who is super sweet. ^^
