The funny ostriches are queuing up to weigh in on the zoo's scale. Adult ostriches can weigh between 100-150 kg, depending on the species and gender. Their eyes and eyelashes remind you a of those of a camel, which is why the latin name for ostrich is: Struthio camelus. They are fast and have an interesting diet - sand and gravel – and includes ocassional small animals which complement their mainly herbal diet.
You can learn a lot about these fascinating animals at the Heidelberg Zoo's Zoo School. Just like you can find out about the other wonderful creatures that call the Heidelberg Zoo their home. The Heidelberg Zoo School provides a huge educational palette for school classes, children's birthdays and ready even for adults. (It is never too late and you're never too old to learn about the wonderful world of animals)
And precisely because the work of the Heidelberg Zoo School is so important and informative, I've drawn them in "Heidelberg wimmelt", which you can get at your favorite book store, from the , directly from Silberburg-Verlag, or at the online bookseller of your choice. I've heard that the zoo is currently sold out of them.
