The Ostwitch is the eighth type of ostrich, added as part of the 2016 Halloween update.

Appearance Edit

The Ostwitch is distinctly coloured with green skin and deep purple clothes, including a gown, a hat and a pair of shoes. The hat also has a yellow ring going around the base of the hat, and the shoes also have square yellow buckles attached to black straps around them. Under the hat is a mop of straggly, stringy, black hair characteristic to a stereotypical witch. The most striking feature of the Ostwitch is the broom positioned between its legs, which is coloured like a stereotypical witch's broom, with a dark chestnut brown broomstick and a brownish yellow head. Finally, the tip of its tail and wings are coloured peach.

Description Edit

Rides the fastest broom in the Savannah, but has the tendency to fly off the handle.

Requirements Edit

Note: Its chance of appearing is low due to it being a tier 4 animal. It will appear randomly but not often, and never before 1000m.

Trivia Edit

  • The Ostwitch is an obvious play on a witch.
  • The description plays on a witch's characteric broom, an ostrich's pace and the phrase "fly off the handle", which could be taken literally as a witch flying off the handle due to losing control, or metaphorically, where 'fly off the handle' means one losing temper, which relates to a witch.

Notes Edit

  • The Ostwitch was released in version 1.3.1 on the 20th of October 2016 as part of the 2016 Halloween update as a permanent add-on.
  • The in-game description had several errors that have since been fixed, including incorrect spelling for the word "tendency" (spelt with an 'a' between the 'd' and 'n' instead of an 'e'), the lack of a period following the description and the lack of a capital letter in the word "savannah".
    • The former two were corrected in version 1.15.0 on the 22nd of March 2018.
    • The latter was corrected in version 1.15.1 on the 19th of April 2018.
