What are the adaptations of the ostrich?



  1. 0 Votes

    Ostrich have the ability to regulate their body temperature by wrapping their wings around their thighs to retain heat in cold weather.  In hot weather, the ostrich cools itself by flapping its wings to generate a breeze.  The ostrich is known for its extreme tolerance to high temperatures.  This is due to a well functioning air sac system, as well as details of the blood circulation.  The ostrich also retains water via a substance containing uric acid that thickens its urine.
