How many there are.
Did you know there are 70,000 kiwis all over New Zealand. We are losing up to 2% of our new zealand native kiwis and it says that 27 kiwis are killed each week by their predators.

A kiwi has fur, light brown feathers and sometimes it  can be a little bit gray, they have very sharp claws. a very long, strong beak nexted to its mouth.

What they eat.
Kiwi eat small invertebrates, seeds, grubs, and many varieties of worms. They also may eat fruit, small crayfish, eels and amphibians.

All kiwis are flightless and some are very shy.
