  1. Hello Daniel, Wow, I didn't know that dogs are one of the great spotted kiwis predators. Keep up the great work.

  2. Hey Daniel,
    Good choice to pick the spotted kiwi. I have also learnt a fact about the spotted kiwi that it used to live throughout the North island, but became extinct in the last 1800s.

  3. Hello Daniel,
    the spotted kiwi is a great animal I have hear about it. I didn't know that they like to eat Earthworms. You have some very good facts about spotted kiwi. You have done a amazing job. Keep up the great work!

  4. Hi Daniel. The animal you have chosen is really cool. Your facts are really interesting. Keep up the brilliant posting.

  5. Hello again Daniel!

  6. Hi Daniel,
    I like that you picked the kiwi as the animal that you would adopt. I also did the kiwi. Well Done!
