Ostriches Don’t Hide Their Heads in the Sand

Everyone grows up thinking Ostriches have the worst defense mechanism of all time. If they stick their head in the sand and they can’t see a predator, then the predator cannot see them. Basically peek-a-boo. But that’s a complete load of crap. Ostriches don’t do that. If they see a predator they run, and run pretty damn fast. And as far as the head in the sand thing? Well, they do occationally stick their heads in the sand. It’s to turn their eggs that they have buried.
