Believe it or not. That distinction (at least for land animals) belongs to the majestic ostrich. Its eye is even bigger than that of an elephant! I guess if your best defense is actually running, you really need a good eye to keep a lookout on your surrounds. And NO, they do not bury their heads in the sand! I always laugh at that saying when it comes up . . . as how in the world can they breathe if they really did that!!

And just another science trivia then whilst we are at it. The ostrich’s eye is REALLY bigger than its brains. But I guess that does not really mean much. It has a big enough brain and just the same a big enough eye. So, that is my photo for this weeks challenge on “eye spy”. I hope you enjoy it.
