After receiving an ostrich egg as a treat to play with, this cub had other ideas and decided to take a bite.

But the cub quickly realised it wasn’t all it was cracked up to be.

And after a quick taste the female cub, who is known as Kacela, certainly looked dissatisfied with her snack and scrunched her nose in disgust.

Photographer Joke Kok, 61, was able to capture the comical moment on camera earlier this year at Artis Zoo in Amsterdam.

Joke, from Holland, said: “At first Kacela seemed to like the egg, I think she was afraid her sister or her dad would take it away from her and wanted to quickly hide it.

“But after a few bites I think she changed her mind and realised just how bad the taste was, it was really funny to watch her expression.

“I have watched Kacela ever since she was a little cub and she is always very playful, she will grab anything she can get her hands on.”
