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. Kakapo are herbivore. 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.
