Super Rare White Kiwi Baby!

AWWWW!

This little kiwi doesn't have to worry about not having wings — when you're this cute someone will carry you anywhere you want to go!

In this handout photo provided by the Pukaha Mt Bruce National Wildlife Centre, a rare white kiwi chick is seen only days after being hatched on May 2011 in Wellington, New Zealand.

The all-white kiwi, named Manukura is the first white chick known to be born in captivity.

The chick is the thirteenth of fourteen baby kiwis hatched at the wildlife centre this season.

We hope they release more photos of the group of baby birdies!

Kiwi Mystery: How Did This Flightless Bird Get To Russia?

Filed under: BirdsCrazzzzy

Crazy Kiwi

WTF Kiwi???

Russia's resort town of Sochi has welcomed an unusual tourist, as locals have found a kiwi living in the city's port.

Kiwis normally live only in New Zealand and it remains unclear how an endangered flightless bird got to Russia.

If the bird did this to get his own Pixar movie he can get in line behind Teddy! A lonely bird or an adorbulous dog blogger? Come on, it's no contest.

Anyway, experts say the kiwi may have arrived on a cruise ship, but Sochi's port authorities deny this. They say all cruise ships are subject to very strict controls.

Zoologists fear that the bird, not being used to the local climate, may die. They are now busy figuring out how to save it.

Today there are only 70,000 kiwis left in the world - and we would gladly raise one if asked!

Stinky Birds Need Deodorant To Live!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueBirds

"BO" is a no-no for these feathered friends!

Kiwis are native birds of New Zealand, known for their small size and unmistakable odor. These cute little guys pack a potent stench that makes them pretty unattractive to noses, but easily discoverable to predators.

Fearful that the birds could become endangered by the ever growing mammal population that feeds on them, scientists are hoping to develop a birdie deodorant to mask their smell.

Inventive, but we don't like the idea that their might be animal testing to ensure this product works. Better find a way around that!

In case you were wondering, scientists explain that kiwis tend to smell like "mushrooms or ammonia."

Strange little things, aren't they?!
