How Fast Can An Ostrich Run?

  • 40 MPH correct

    An ostrich can reach speeds up to 40 MPH! They are flightless birds, which means they are born to run and run they do. In a single stride, an ostrich can cover 10 to 16 feet. Ostriches also use those long legs to protect themselves from dangerous threats. If they feel threatened, they can produce enough force behind a kick to kill a human.
