Iranian ostrich

Ostriches were once found over a much larger area in nature than they are today Human development and encroachment on their habitat over the past half century has caused their population to decline and they are now found only in the African savannahs. One true species is recognized Struthio camelus and several subspecies.

The diet of ostriches in the wild may come as a surprise to many propagators who have never fed them anything but commercially produced food. The wild ones are primarily grazing animals, existing on a variety of plant and brush material. In many instances, succulent plants and fruits also make up a large portion of their diet as do small insects and lizards.
