Animal Adaptations - Thursday 1 December 2016

Today the Middle School were very fortunate to have Mr Raynor from
Auckland Museum came to talk about Animal Adaptations.

We saw a Moa leg and it's predator the Haast Eagle - skull and claw.  The Moa and Haast Eagle are now extinct.

Thank you for coming to talk to us Mr Raynor!!!

He bought a mount of a little spotted kiwi.  Our national bird can  still become extinct if we do not look after their habitats and eliminate their predators.

Some of the predators we introduced to NZ are Mice, Rats, Stoats,  and Cats.  These animals often kill our native birds.
