“An ostrich’s eye is bigger than it’s brain”

The ostrich’s eyes are about the size of billiard balls. They take up so much room in the skull that the ostrich’s brain is actually smaller than either one of its eyeballs. This may be why the ostrich, despite its tremendous running speed, is not very good at eluding predators: It tends to run in circles.
