African Ostrich

The bird makes a strong impression, and that is not surprising because it is the largest bird in the world. On the average, they reach up to 2,7 m in height and up to 90 kg in weight.In Egypt, the image of an ostrich symbolized justice. Usually the birds’ vane is not of the same size on either side of the feathers’ shaft, but it is for ostriches. The shaft divides the feather precisely in half. In Europe, ostriches were known but not seen until the 18th c.Coloring of the male ostrich is black, with white flight and tail feathers. The female is colored uniformly in grayish-brown shades. It is the only bird in the world with two fingers. Ostriches are great runners; they are able to reach the speed of 70 km/h (but only for short distances). The bird is very strong –without much effort, it is able to carry a man on its back, and a kick of its legs can bend a thick metal rack. Eggs weigh about 1,5 kg (that is equivalent roughly to 40 chicken eggs). They feed mainly on plant foods, but also eat insects, small mammals and reptiles. There is a very popular legend that ostriches hide their heads in the sand when facing danger. However, scientists believe that such behavior is not characteristic of them.

Deer

Deer live primarily in the forests of Europe, and are not considered endangered.Different subspecies of deer differ in the length of their horns, and the size. Some species of deer grow a little more hair on the neck in the fall and it gives them a noble appearance. The average weight of a newborn fawn is fifteen kilograms. Young deer are born with spots on the body that disappear with time. Adult deer usually separate from the herd, while the little deer live with the herd and their mother for a long time.

Wild Boar

Wild boars are common in Europe, Asia, North-East and North-West Africa. Our country is inhabited by a common form. They lead gregarious lifestyle, where the herd is generally managed by an experienced saw whom other saws and offspring follow. Adult boars live separately with exception of the estrus period. Fodder section is 0.5 to 2.5 square kilometers. There are beds, feeding areas, baths and trails there. They have perfect sense of smell, their sight is weak, and they communicate by means of acoustic signals. The diet is diverse and includes underground parts of plants, fruits, berries, seeds, animal feed (worms, mollusks, insects, larvae, carrion). The estrus period lasts from November to January. The farrow is in March - May, usually in April. In a brood there are usually 4-6 piglets with maximum of 10-12 farrows. The sexual maturity is reached at the age of 8-10 months (females) or at the age of 18-20 months (males).
