The kiwi is the iconic New Zealand bird, our unofficial national emblem. It cannot fly and has loose, hair-like feathers and a long narrow bill. It dwells on the ground and nests in burrows. There are several species of kiwi, all listed as endangered or vulnerable. Despite their small size (similar to a chicken) they are related to emus, and are known for laying the largest egg in relation to body size in the world.
The Māori traditionally believed that kiwi were under the protection of Tāne Mahuta, god of the forest. Their feathers were used for kahu kiwi—treasured ceremonial cloaks.
