Global Myths That Modern Science Prove They Are Wrong

11. Ostriches Bury Their Heads in the Sand

When people prefer to ignore their problems instead of facing them, we say as a metaphor “they stuck their head like an ostrich”. Usually, according to the myth, the ostrich will bury their head when they sense danger, but that’s not quite right.


Sometimes ostrich will lay its body on the floor in a position that can give the illusion that he burry its head. The reason they do it is usually when they incubate on the eggs and use the peak to move the eggs which again gives the illusion, they bury the head.
