The ostrich is native to Africa and are the largest birds in the world. When fully grown stand Ostriches stand about 7 to 9 feet tall and can weigh 200 to 400 pounds. 

Female ostriches are brown and gray; males are black with white wings and tail feathers. 

Ostrich is lean and tastes like beef, but contains much less fat. In fact, Ostrich meat is even lower in calories than chicken and turkey. Ostrich meat is sold as steaks, fillet, medallions, roasts and ground meat. 

The most tender meat comes from the thigh or fan. Adult ostriches yield about 80 pounds of red meat, which comes primarily from the upper leg, back and thigh muscles.
