The six-foot ostrich copied the young girl’s actions during the short video
One of the large birds walked over towards the fence and began mimicking the youngster’s actions.
The ostrich, which is farmed from its lean meat, shakes its feathers and wiggles repeatedly.
Ostrich leather is also particularly luxurious and soft.
It’s feathers are also highly prized.
A 125kg ostrich can produce up to 45kg of meat which can sell for £1,170.
In the wild, ostriches can live for between 30 and 40 years, while their powerful legs can propel them to a top speed of 40mph in a sprint and 30mph over longer distances.
The ostrich can use its powerful legs to defend itself against attack, with the ability to kill a lion.
