Ostriches are defensive, meaning generally they are docile until provoked.
Great spot to paint custom tattoos on back legs such as racing numbers, a large pink heart, or your company's colors.
Ostriches can be tamed by using vegetables or berries. Chili are the most effective. They must be carefully taken down to 20% health by avoiding critical hits. Then hit with a Bola and force fed on a timer.
The ostrich is useful for exploring/taming due to its mobility. It moves quickly, can jump far, and with some leveling will easily hold enough weight to match your max weight; but will never hold enough weight for efficient bulk transportation and will be pretty fragile with low HP and resistance. Ostriches can also fit through sloped roof doors, making them easy to transport inside ships for protection. When riding you get a significant Hyperthermal Insulation Buff (more info).
You can Breed Ostriches in the following biomes: Western Tropics, High Desert, Low Desert.
Acceptable temperatures for Ostrich mating and offspring are between 25c (77f) and 43c (109.4f).

Egg incubation time for Ostriches is 1 hour 45 minutes.
about 5 hours from egg hatch to juvenile
