This is the hilarious moment a woman totally freaked out when an ostrich poked its head through the car window at a safari park in search of food.

Chloe Benham, 22, visited the park with her friend Stephen Malon, 29, but she panicked when the ostrich excitedly went for the bag of corn.

The pair were excited to visit the animal park Safari Wild Animal Park in Como, Mississippi.

Chloe, a student at the University of Mississippi, grew up on a farm and loves animals.

Stephen, a bartender, had visited the park once before and was excited to go back.

He said: “I had been once before so I was excited to go back again. Chloe grew up around farm animals and LOVED goats so she was very excited too.

“I never expected her to be scared of any of them, let alone an ostrich! Neither of us knew what was coming.”

Once Chloe regained her composure, both of them burst out laughing and described the day as "absolutely hilarious."

Chloe said: “I probably laughed the hardest I ever have in my life.

“There were a ton of ostriches across the animal park grounds, so we did encounter them after this.

"I made sure to roll up my window before they could get another chance to stick their head in the car.

“I would really love to overcome my fear of ostriches before I die though!”
