So named for being traditionally native to the Eldin province of Hyrule, the Eldin ostrich is notable among birds foremost for its incombustible down, which has the odd property of resisting heat and keeping the ostrich's body unusually cool. This helps the bird make its nest near the tremendously hot active volcanoes for which Eldin is famous, and safely away from most predators that would hunt it down. The few predators native to the region that would seek to devour it have little hope of keeping up with the bird's fleet feet. Indeed, the bird flees from almost anything but the heat-resistant bugs and tiny lizards that make up its diet.
