Asian Ostrich
Struthio asiaticus
Name Asian Ostrich
Period Pliocene epoch
Location Central Asia to China
The Asian Ostrich, Struthio asiaticus, was an ostrich found in the Pliocene from Central Asia to China.

In China, ostriches are known to have become extinct only around or even after the end of the last ice age; images of ostriches have been found there on prehistoric pottery and as petroglyphs indicating that they were around at the same time as humans first reached China. It may have been responsible for the legend of the Chinese phoenix.
