Hello, and welcome to Grovedale news . Tonight we are going to have a kiwi named Kayla right here at Grovedale Primary School talking about her species and the struggles that she faces every day. Grovedale news
Hey peeps, I’m Kayla the kiwi and if you want to know moreabout my species then this is the book for you . The country I live in is New Zealand .Our habitat is grassland and forest . Our feathers are hair like and no we don’t use shampoo. Peek-a-boo
All of us are as big as a chicken/ forty five centre metres and feral cats and dogs don’t want to mess with me because i’ll give them the old biffo!!.So please keep yourcats and dogs on your property.
We are semi nocturnal which means we come out at night and day how cool are we. There are three common species and two uncommon but I’m a common brown kiwi . Like I said before about feral cats and dogs they usually are our predators same asimported animals there all just a bunch of losers.
My bill is well adapted to my habitat as well as digging up food. Even though kiwi’s like me have wings we are like chickens and can’t fly. We can run but our wings are too short to boost us up.
Kiwi’s are nearly blind during the day that is when we mostly get into fights withimported animals .But the others just run away because there wusses unlike me who’s brave. I have a good sense of hearing. I bet I couldhear you from a mile away. I’ve got good smelling as well.
When I’m old enough to mate I will have two eggs each a quarter of my body weight. Imagine being me having to push out two eggs. That would equal half of your body weight. My natural food sources are worms ,insects and berries .That’s where my nose comes into use so I can dig up insects and worms. Wow those eggs are big
I rarely see humans because of my shy personality not because I’m endangered. I love being a female because I don’t make the nest the male does that.
I go out to look for food while the male is looking after the chicks for seventy five days. I like being a female because females are bigger than males.
Soon after the chicks hatch they stay with their dad witch is not fare. Looks like... A stick long beak with nostrils either side. Eyes are on the top of their head. An egg like body with a round head.
There are only 70,000 in the world including captivity. I hope you enjoyed and learnt something about Kiwi’s. Goodbye peeps
