Species Description
The kiwi (genus Apteryx) is a small, flightless bird, represented by six recognized species that are only found in parts of New Zealand. The North Island Brown Kiwi, the most abundant species, lives throughout the North Island; of the remaining species, four (the Great Spotted Kiwi, Okarito Brown Kiwi, Haast Tokoeka and Southern Tokoeka) are found in small pockets on the South Island, while the Little Spotted Kiwi is found only on predator-free islands off the New Zealand coast. Kiwis stand about 40 cm tall, and weigh between 4-6 lbs; reverse sexual dimorphism occurs in these birds, with the female being larger than the male. They are primarily forest-dwellers, but can survive in shrubland if their usual habitat is disturbed.
