Meanwhile, the largest bird in the world is over 190% bigger than the bee hummingbird. It’s the ostrich, standing between six and nine feet tall and weighing over two hundred pounds.3 Ostrich eggs, too, are much larger and weigh over three pounds each.4
Due to their size, however, ostriches can’t fly. They can run, though, and can reach speeds up to 43 mph. They hold the titles of largest bird, largest eggs, and quickest animal on two legs.3 In the wild, they can live to be forty years old and can live even longer in captivity.4
