How the Ostrich got its Long Legs

A myth submitted to the site by CRAIG


Long, long ago the ostrich had short,stumpy legs and it couldn't fly. All the other birds were nasty to the ostrich and laughed and called poor ostrich nasty names.

One day the vulture challenged the ostrich to a running race. The ostrich said yes but thought the vulture would win because it could never compete with the powerful and evil vulture.

The day of the race arrived and the ostrich was very nervous so he prayed to the magical God high up in the big rock.

The buzzer went off and the race started—On your marks get set Go!!!!! Suddenly the ostrich's legs started to grow. The legs grew and grew and the ostrich won the race.

And that how the ostrich got its long legs.
