I’m no spring chicken but I was today years old when I found out how big the national bird of New Zealand actually is.

I thought Kiwis were small, chick-like little things.

Friends, I was wrong.

I seems I had never seen a Kiwi with a human for scale.

Speaking of the sheer scale of things… after falling down a Kiwi bird rabbithole (I live a very thrilling life), I then learned how big Kiwi eggs are compared to the rest of their body.


I can’t get over it.
