Their structure is hollow with an internal pattern of supportive struts making their skeleton much lighter than animals of similar size. If you cut a slice out of a bird’s bone it would looks a bit like a sponge. Since Ostriches do not fly, many of their bones are like our own-solid bone encasing a tube of marrow.
