A modern taxidermy ostrich head mounted on an oak shield.
Ostriches have long legs and a long neck, but they have a small head. Male ostriches have black feathers and female ostriches have grey and brown feathers. Both males and females have white feathers on their wings and tails. Ostriches can be 6 – 9 feet tall and can run with a speed of about 40 miles per hour.
They now only live in Africa and live in open grassland called savannas in the Sahel, in parts of East Africa and south-west Africa. Some ostriches live in areas of the Sahara desert.
In perfect condition. A modern mount.
Ostriches are not covered under CITES laws.
