Repost @shirohyde ・・・ File: "Kakapo" Kakapo (Strigops habroptila) <CR> ________________________ Large, flightless and nocturnal, the kākāpō is an eccentric parrot which can live for decades. It is not closely related to other parrots and, in fact, has a combination of biological features not shared by any other species. Early Polynesian settlers hunted the bird for its plumage and meat. At the beginning of the 19th century, kākāpō were still widespread throughout New Zealand. From the 1840s, European settlers not only hunted the bird, they cleared and set fire to bush for farming, destroying its habitat. Most devastating of all to its survival was the introduction of predators such as rats, cats and stoats. In ancient history, its only endemic predator was a giant eagle (now extinct) and it developed the habit of nesting, rearing and feeding its young on the ground. This nesting behaviour made its eggs and chicks easy prey to introduced mammalian predators, especially cats. source: nzbirdsonline.org.nz ________________________ Bertubuh besar, tak dapat terbang dan nokturnal. Kakapo adalah jenis parrot unik yang mampu hidup puluhan tahun. Satwa ini tidak benar-benar ber relasi dengan parrot yang lain, karena memiliki kombinasi fitur biologis yang tidak dimiliki spesies lainnya. Di era datangnya bangsa Polynesia, Kakapo diburu karena bulu dan dagingnya. Di awal abad ke 19, kakapo masih tersebar di seluruh Selandia Baru. Sejak tahun 1840an, kedatangan bangsa Eropa tak hanya memburu kakapo, tapi juga membakar habitatnya untuk lahan pertanian. Ancaman lain yang dihadapi oleh kakapo adalah datangnya spesies pendatang seperti tikus, kucing dan cerpelai. Di masa lampau, predator alami kakapo hanyalah elang raksasa (punah) dan karenanya memiliki kebiasaan untuk membuat sarang, bertelur dan kemudian membesarkan anaknya di tanah. Kebiasaan alami kakapo inilah yang membuat predator pendatang seperti kucing mudah memakan telur dan anak kakapo. ________________________ komikinajah sianginajah selasaedukasi
