151--South Africa: Get Off My Ostrich
@ CherieSpotting     Sep 16 2003 - 11:05 PST
cherie writes: Location: Oudtshoorn, South Africa. Four ladies (Kristi, Carter, Renee and Cherie) attempt to ride the largest bird in the world--the ostrich! We spent the day at the Highgate Ostrich Farm learning ostrich facts like these:
* When you eat an ostrich filet, you are eating the ostrich's knee.
* One ostrich egg is equal to 24 chicken eggs.
* An adult ostrich weighs about 220 pounds and can run up to 80 km/h.
* The World Record for eating a hard-boiled ostrich egg is 6 minutes, 40 seconds.

For more info on how you can ride an ostrich see: www.highgate.co.za/
