Kakapo Puzzle with Habitat Image Tray
Below information is printed on the back of the tray for your reference:
Kakapo are listed internationally as a critically endangered species. It is a classic example of evolution on an isolated island. It is the only parrot in the world that is flightless and nocturnal and is longest lived, living up to 96 years. Kakapo are the heaviest parrot in the world. Their staple diet include fern roots, seeds, cones, green shoots, fungi, stems, foliage, moss, nuts, bulbs, pollen, bark and fruit. The male Kakapo produces a strange 'boom' call to attract potential mates, which can be heard up to 5 kilometres away. Adult Kakapo have beautiful mossy green plumage mottled with brown and yellow, which provides excellent camouflage against the forest floor. The face is owl-like, yellowish-brown, and framed with modified whisker-like feathers. Juvenile Kakapo are slightly duller in colour than adults and have browner faces.
Kakapo live in a wide range of habitat. They forage on the ground and although they cannot fly, they are good climbers and can climb high into trees. They will leap from the trees and flap their wings managing a controlled plummet. They roost in trees or on the ground during the day and only become active at night. A bird can walk for several kilometres in one night.
