    The strek is the largest of the struthiopods, and lives in the grassy plains of eastern Europe. Unlike the European ungulapeds, struthiopods are still fully oviparous, and are therefore forced to go to great lengths to hide and protect their eggs from nest predation. It has been suggested that this difference is the very reason why the ungulapeds so quickly took over from the eurolophids in the Miocene.
