that’s a baby ostrich.
that’s how it looks like resting after making its first attempt to crack out of its shell.
no, we can’t help it out.
it has to do it itself. according to the keeper, it takes approximately 40 hours for the baby ostrich to crack out of its shell.
nature has its own way of educating infants.
just how tough is the ostrich egg? holding a piece of shell is like holding a piece of ceramic.
we got one of the big guys in the group to stand on one leg on an egg and it did not break.
the dude had to use a power drill to open an (unfertile) egg.
nature has its own was of protecting its creatures.
