The Barbary Ostrich is a species of flightless bird native to certain large areas of Africa.
The Barbary Ostrich is the largest living species of bird and largest living dinosaur. It lays the largest eggs of any living bird.
The Ostrich head and bill are relatively small for the birds’ huge size, with the bill measuring 12 4 3⁄4 to 5 3⁄4 in.
Their skin varies in color depending on the subspecies, with some having light or dark gray skin and others having pinkish or even reddish skin.
The strong legs of the Barbary Ostrich are unfeathered and show bare skin, with the tarsus (the lowest upright part of the leg) being covered in scales: red in the male, black in the female.
The long neck and legs keep their head up to 9 ft 2 in. above the ground, and their eyes are said to be the largest of any land vertebrate helping them to see predators at a great distance. The eyes are shaded from sunlight from above.
Males stand 6 ft 11 in to 9 ft in. tall and weigh 220–290 lb., whereas females are about 5 ft 9 in to 6 ft 3 in. tall and weigh 200–260 lb.
Unlike all other living birds, the Barbary Ostrich secretes urine separately from feces. All other birds store the urine and feces combined in the coprodeum, but the ostrich stores the feces in the terminal rectum.
The Barbary Ostrich also have unique pubic bones that are fused to hold their gut. Unlike most birds, the males have a copulatory organ, which is retractable and 8 in. long. Their palate differs from other ratites in that the sphenoid and palatal bones are unconnected.
