The ostrich is a large flightless bird whose scientific name is Struthio camelus. They live mainly in Africa and can reach a height of up to 2.7 meters and weigh about 150 kg. They can run at speeds of up to 70 km/h and are among the fastest birds in the world. They are raised for meat, eggs, and hides for leather goods.
The jaguar (also known as the leopard) is a species of mammal in the cat family (Felidae) and the scientific name is Panthera pardus. They vary in color from pale yellow to black, with circular or diamond-shaped spots on the coat. Jaguars live in Africa, Asia, and parts of Europe. They are predators and usually hunt mainly at night. The jaguar is one of the wildlife species critically endangered by habitat loss and illegal hunting.
Both jaguars and ostriches are extremely fast animals in the wild, so when these two races, who will win?
Initially, an ostrich with black and white feathers came into the sight of the jaguars. But when they start to attack, and chase, the target is changed. Their original target ran too fast, while another ostrich with gray feathers ran at a slower pace.
So the jaguar swarm switched its target to this second prey. In addition to the jaguars, other carnivores including lions and hyenas are engaged in this hunt. Perhaps they are looking for an opportune moment to strike.
Although possessing a body twice as big as a jaguar, many times the height and long muscular legs, the gray ostrich was still forced to give up when being chased by 3 jaguars. Hunters quickly take down large prey.
