New Zealand is roaming with wildlife, from tiny gnats to enormous whales; but on this page, we talk about a bird that wasn't made to be too big; nor to be too small, but just a right size. This bird is known as a "kea". The Kea is a large parrot in the forested and alpine riegons of the South Island of New Zealand.

On the wings of a kea, you can see a bright orange colour. The kea is quite rare in the wild, but you can see the kea in the picture at Bristol Zoo. The kea is one of the ten native, or edemic parrots to New Zealand. Around 10% of the kea populations live longer than 20 years. The oldest kea in a zoo lived till it was 50 years old.
