About the Kiwi
The Kiwi is New Zealand's national icon but despite the fact that New Zealanders are known as Kiwis most have never seen the bird in its native habitat or heard it. Its unusual by bird standards being unable to fly and having hair like feathers. It is mainly nocternal sniffing out food using nostrils located at the end of its long beak. Its ground-based existence makes it vulnerable to predators and it is an endangered species. The smaller males do most of the egg incubation but it is the larger female who has to lay an egg about one-third its own size. Kiwis live in pairs and mate for life and can up to 30 years in a Predator free environment.
