Friday Fun Facts …. “🤨 Ostrich’s Eyes, Ostrich’s Brain 🤨 … “!!


~~April 19, 2019~~


The ostrich’s eyes are about the size of billiard balls.

They take up so much room in the skull that the ostrich’s brain is actually smaller than either one of its eyeballs. This may be why the ostrich, despite its tremendous running speed, is not very good at eluding predators:

It tends to run in circles.

Eddie Rosario, the Minnesota Twins left fielder, can’t remember the exact year, but he was a youth baseball player in his native Puerto Rico when he was given the choice of two jerseys: No. 21 or another number.
