What are Kiwis and what make Kiwis so special?

The Kiwi is well-known around the world. Kiwis are flightless birds native to the island to New Zealand, in the genus Apteryx and also family members Apterygidae. At around the size of a domestic poultry, kiwis are by far the smallest living ratites (which likewise contain ostriches, emus, rheas, as well as cassowaries), as well as lay the largest egg in regard to their body size of any kind of varieties of bird on the planet. DNA sequence contrasts have yielded the unexpected conclusion that kiwis are a lot a lot more very closely associated to the extinct Malagasy elephant birds than to the moa they discussed New Zealand with. There are 5 identified species, 2 which are currently prone, among which is endangered, as well as among which is seriously endangered. All species have been negatively influenced by historic logging yet currently the remaining large locations of their woodland habitat are well secured in reserves and national forests. Currently, the worst hazard to their survival is predation by intrusive mammalian killers.
