TILLY THE OSTRICH
Your purchase includes the painting and ready to hang Prose Panel with the following words:
Tilly the Ostrich looks fierce, but that is understandable. She is sitting on her nest.
Well it isn’t exactly HER nest. It is a communal nest.
That means that all of the female ostriches in their group lay their eggs in a single nest.
All the ostriches (male and female) take turns sitting on the nest
keeping the eggs protected and warm till they hatch.
Even though it is a communal nest, each mother ostrich
knows exactly which of the eggs are hers.
An amazing feat because all the eggs look so much alike!
