Of the 8,600 bird species which exist today, the ostrich is the largest. They are still found in the wild in certain parts of Africa, and are very well adapted to desert life, getting water from the plants they eat.

Ostriches usually weigh from 200 to 285 lbs although some male ostriches have been recorded with weights of up to 340 lb. a 250 pound ostrich may yield up to 130 pounds of red meat.
