Kiwi Bird by humon Kiwi Bird by humon
I'm done with all the art for the book! [link]

But I made one drawing too many so you get the kiwi now instead. :D

You gotta' love how it's the male who has to incubate it. It's like the female is saying, "I'm done with that shit! You do the rest! I'm off!" :XD:

you've well-captured the kiwis' dynamic between the sexes and the egg.

fun facial expressions too

Worse, they will always have to keep laying those massive eggs regardless if they're fertilized. Every time the kiwi has it's period... it has to let out one of those.

Kiwis are strange creatures. They're like nature was trying to see how far you can change a bird while still having it technically be a bird.
Have you ever seen a kiwi skeleton? Their wings are basically just fingers.

Wow, when my sister said a kiwi bird i just imagined a kiwi with wings O.o
ANYWAYS that must be very painful...

Technically, kiwi do have wings, but they're so small and underdeveloped that although they exist, they are of absolutely no use. 

Typical New Zealand birds though, so many of our birds either can't fly well or fly at all. The kiwi is definitely our crowning glory though :3

Still at home, still huge. It's a boy, and it really could be any day now (or ouch, any hour) and I'd stress a lot less if my hubby would get that darn crib assembled. :lol:

Gotta love how the male is just staring at he belly in slight confusion. You can bet he's wondering how he's supposed to incubate that thing

What sort of evolutionary advantage, I wonder, does having such a life-threatening birth method have?
