  • Description

    INTRODUCTION: The first artificially incubated Kiwi egg was recently hatched in New Zealand with the help of two amateur naturalists. The Kiwi is one of New Zealand's national symbols. It's a flightless bird about the size of a chicken which lays an enormous eggs. To further complicate the matter, the male hatches the egg and can only accommodate two of them a year. With this latest achievement in artificial incubation the Kiwi may no longer be an endangered species. A camera was on hand to capture the movement.
