Warning: This may be the cutest two minutes of your life.

They're the biggest bird on the planet, but they have to start somewhere. These tiny adorable chicks will grow up to be up to 9 feet tall and weigh 350 pounds. With spots and stripes and porcupine like backs they don't look much like the adults they become, but who can complain? Their too cute for words.

They hail from Africa and can tolerate a wide range of temperatures, including extreme heat. Because they're from the desert ostriches are okay with losing up to 25% of their body weight to dehydration before becoming ill. In fact, their Latin name is Struthio camelus, after the camel. Ostriches do not bury their head in the sand, instead when threatened they run- up to 45 miles per hour. Failing that they deliver a powerful forward kick that can easily kill a lion.

I just love them! More videos of these guys coming soon... they're only a few weeks old and this is a delicate age. Chicks this young tend to do everything in their power to not survive. I just brought them home, but I already had to take one to the vet. I'm monitoring them closely and with some good fortune I'll have two giant birds by next year.
