#018 florian the ostrich


"Florian works in fashion. Some say that his career path formed inside his giant egg, as from the moment of hatching he boasted a stronger beak, longer legs and more voluminous plumage than the rest of the flock had ever seen. Twenty-five years of meticulous preening has ensured he has stayed in topnotch condition (a beauty regime which adamantly rejects any ‘head in the sand’ treatments). Last year he astutely recognised that he had peaked in his modelling career, and is getting ready to become the pride of all who know him when he revels his own signature collection this spring and strongly strides off the catwalk and onto the shop floor." (Kerry Lord, Edward's Menagerie Birds, 2015)
