One of the most amazing stories about New Zealand

I’ve never been to New Zealand, and I have no knowledge about New Zealand. So I tried to find out about New Zealand. Then, I discovered one amazing fact. It's a bird. The bird's name is "Kiwi."

The "Kiwi" is a national symbol of New Zealand. They are flightless birds endemic to there. At around the size of a domestic chicken, you can see one in the photo. Do you think it is similar to something? Incidentally, I did not notice anything when I saw this bird.

In fact, "Kiwi-fruit" is derived from this bird "Kiwi"! I was very surprised to know this fact, and I wanna get to know more about the animals of New Zealand.

I had no interest in New Zealand until yesterday...But I am now very interested in New Zealand!
