kiwi

  1. 1. KIWISSSS!!!! By Ethan Orcutt Academy High School.
  2. 2. Kiwi s There are five types of Kiwis Great spotted kiwi Okarito kiwi or Rowi Little spotted kiwi Northern and southern brown Kiwi
  3. 3. Random Kiwi Facts. Okarito kiwis are said to live up to 100 years. Even when in captivity Kiwis revert back to wild instincts and are aggressive. The Kiwi is one of the oldest remaining bird species and one of many flightless birds from New Zealand. Only three white Kiwis have been hatched in captivity. The only species of Kiwi to be hatched outside of New Zealand is the Northern brown Kiwi.
  4. 4. I’m going to show you the three or four most important part of a Kiwi And then show you two or three things describing those parts and why they’re important.
  5. 5. The Kiwi The Kiwi is a type of flightless bird. That inhabits New Zealand.
  6. 6. New Zealand, before humans arrived had very few large predators so the Kiwi evolved into not needing wings to escape.
  7. 7. Having no need for flying left open slots for other parts of the Kiwi to evolve. Kiwis have marrow in their bones instead of being hollow. They also lay large eggs because they don’t have to worry about flying with them
  8. 8. Kiwi Eggs Kiwis have the largest egg to body size ratio 1:5.
  9. 9. The chicken and the Kiwi are the same size yet the kiwi egg is much larger.
  10. 10. Why the Kiwi egg is so BIG The Kiwi lays a big egg so that when it hatches the chick is very developed and mature. The Kiwi egg gets so big that the mother has to eat three times as much food and fast the last few days because of how compressed its organs are. The Kiwi chick hatches with its eyes fully open and leaves the territory after 4-6 weeks.
  11. 11. Comparison of flightless bird eggs
  12. 12. Kiwis are endangered
  13. 13. Why? Ever since humans came to New Zealand they brought predators. And since Kiwis can’t fly or defend themselves good enough they been killed.
  14. 14. And due to deforestation Kiwi habitats have been destroyed
  15. 15. But New Zealand has taken notice and supplies huge efforts to keep the Kiwi population alive.
  16. 16. Goodbye Watch Kiwi!
