They look like little penguins who can fly. The world is full with amazing stuff. I really hope that this kind wont go extinct in the near decade. Pollution in earth might have an effect on population of natural world

Love the footage of the kakapo trying to mate on the man's head with Steven Fry watching and laughing.

I had to look it up, and here it is for you all to enjoy. Well deserved winner. The Antipodean Albatross to win next year.
