Here on the garden route ostrich farms surround us. When travelling I often go to look at the birds and they normally run right up to the fence as they probably think I come bearing food. They seem to be incredibly inquisitive. I love their massive eyes framed with long lashes that any woman covets ! Their toes and feet on the other hand are massive club like appendages- that can kick a really mean punch. That being said- I make sure I stand on one side of the fence whilst they are on the other.
