A Yellow Eyed Penguin rests in the grass at the Penguin Place Reserve on the Otago Peninsula in Otago, which is located on the East Coast of the South Island of New Zealand. This reserve was founded in 1985 and was built to protect these animals.
Kagus are so rare that even scientists do not know much about this New Zealand wonder. Though it has large wings this bird remains flightless and is a forest dweller with oddly light coloring. This unsual bird has the red blood count of other birds.
