The largest stork is the Jabiru (Jabiru mycteria), also the largest bird on the continent with a wingspan of three meters and the height of an average man. Unique and unmistakable with stark white plumage, it has a narrow, down-curving black beak and a red band around its neck. The remaining Jabiru populations keeps to the grassy, coastal savannas of Mundo Maya. There are only about 20 pairs nesting in the Yucatan Peninsula (mostly around Trminos Lagoon), and about 100 more in Belize. Jabiru nests are usually found in trees standing alone, making them eminently visible. Given the bird\'s \"endangered species\" status, however, visitors are advised to keep their distance. The Jabiru frightens easily and could be scared off its nest, leaving the young to die.

The African ostrich is the largest living ratite. A large member of this species can be nearly three meters (9.9 feet) tall, weigh as much as 159 kilograms (350 pounds), and can outrun a horse!!
