Meet the Kakapo – the most extraordinary parrot in the world! 2/4/2016 •

This bird native to New Zealand weighs almost four kilos and is the heaviest parrot in the world. Unfortunately, Kakapo is on the edge of extinction: currently, there only one hundred and fifty individuals.


Though the species has wings, it cannot fly and climbs trees instead to get tasty fruit. The bird is unlike other parrots for several other reasons as well. For example, it breeds very slowly mostly because female birds can lay eggs only once in five years!
