New Zealand - Animal and Bird Life


New Zealand's Animal and Bird Life
New Zealand has many interesting and rare natural and introduced inhabitants, including the Tuatara, with links to the era of dinosaurs, the Kea, the world's only alpine parrot, the Kiwi, a rare and flightless bird and one of our national icons, the Possum, a marsupial introduced from Australia and now proliferating in its new home, and the sub-Antartic fur seal and yellow eyed penguin.
