facts about a insect we choose

The kiwi is a brown, fuzzy, flightless bird native to the forests and jungles of New Zealand. In recent years the kiwi has become endangered, mainly due to introduced predators like dogs, cats, rats, ferrets, and weasels which hunt the kiwi and eat its eggs.

Kiwi has a highly developed sense of smell, unusual in a bird, and are the only 
birds with nostrils at the end of their long beaks. Kiwi eats small invertebrates, seedsgrubs, and many varieties of worms. They also may eat fruit, small crayfish, eels, and amphibians.

Kiwi doesn't need a pristine native forest and is found in scrub and rough farmland, exotic plantation forests, sand dunes and snowy tussocks, even mangroves. They especially like places with wetland vegetation, and where trees run down to a river's edge.

  1. Kia ora Evangeline,

    It's ironic that you chose a kiwi bird because I just wrote you a message about kiwi birds on the 'Predator' activity page! I love kiwi birds and am very happy that you have chosen to adopt one for this activity.

    In order to earn full points for the activity we do need you to write a blog post in your own words that tells us about kiwi birds. Can you please replace the information that you posted with your own ideas and your own words?

    Thanks, Evangeline. I'll look forward to reading your updated post!

    Bye for now :)
