Many people don't know that ostriches are highly exclusive pack animals. When a new ostrich attempts to join the pack, they are often subject to severe anti-social behavior. When John Cabot first visited Africa, he brought back a group of ostriches to England. King Henry VIII witnessed this exclusive behavior and coined the term "Ostrichsizing." When Teddy Roosevelt visited Africa on safari he mispronounced it as "ostracizing" and the term was changed.
