Africa page 9 of 10: ostrich nest

In the remote open savanna of the Mara, a female ostrich sits on a communal nest, her eggs in the center. When we returned a week later the nest was gone. This can only be a case of human poaching, as shell fragments would remain after hatching or wild animal predation. Ostrich eggs are sold for up to $20 an egg.
