An Ostrich is an System Animal introduced in 2010. It has only appeared in one set, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time's 7570 The Ostrich Race. In 2012, a DUPLO version of the ostrich was released, and included in two sets.
The first ostrich was released in the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time theme. It is made out of two pieces. It has long light pink legs with pointed toes stretched out in a walking position. The legs are connected to the body which is mostly black. It has feathers on it, and has a white tail. The wings have white on the end as well. The body has four studs on top, so a minifigure can sit. At the end of the body, there is a place to connect the neck and head. The head is light pink and has rounded shape. The beak has two black nostrils on each side and black eyes with white pupils.
Several DUPLO Figures went on a safari and saw multiple types of animals, including ostriches. Some of them even rode the ostriches.
