Kakapo parrot from New Zealand. They are large, nocturnal, flightless parrots who are also incredibly endangered. Impossible to see them, but knowing such neat animals live in New Zealand makes me want to visit.
Kakapo: super cool ground parrot, lives off the coast of New Zealand. Smells like honey, woofs like a dog, and "chings" like a cash register. Weighs about 8 pounds. Critically endangered - about 150 left!
