Our Life Size Model Ostrich is a great example of the largest living flightless bird. Like his living counterpart, he is distinctive in appearance, with a long neck and legs.
The distinct standard markings of a dark body, white neck and cream legs on the bird ensure that it stands out.
Flightless birds like ostriches are the easiest to take care of in captivity because not only do they not have to be caged, but obviously cannot suffer from bird flu…
This fibreglass model has similar requirements ; it has no need to be penned up; and cannot even catch a common cold….. it does however like an audience…
Ruffling Ostrich Feathers
There is a great depth of body to this ostrich model, along with a fine plumage on the tail and strong legs anchored by two rather large feet. It also has individual markings on the various areas of the bird`s body.
The bird is extremely strong and durable.
The realistic model Ostrich is produced in tough fibreglass, and certainly gives the impression of being no shrinking violet!
Security and Stability
During production, metal rings or “lugs” are inserted into the mould under each foot.
This ensures that the ostrich model is afforded greater stability. Should the standing surface be on soft ground, then metal tent pegs can be used to fix it down.
If however the ground is hard, or a wooden base is preferred, then bolts or screws can be used. This also provides greater security.
It should be noted that it is relatively simple to ensure the fixings are discreetly hidden.
