Hi everyone. It's Levonah again and this is Winter Learning Journey day 3. So let's get started.
On the site it said I have to write about a New Zealand native bird. I picked a Tuatara. Here are some facts about it.
Fact 1: All the species that were alive around 60 million years ago were extinct expect for tuatara.
Fact 2: The tuatara is a nocturnal animal and lives on 30 small islands off the cost of New Zealand.
Fact 3: The tuatara is carnivorous. Carnivorous means that in order for the tuatara to survive it eats other animals like spiders, insects, beetles also birds eggs they eat many more but this is just some animals that they eat.
Fact 4: Did you know where the name tuatara comes from. Well tuatara came from Maori peaks on the back.
Fact 5: The tuatara has 3 eyes. The tuataras 3rd eye is at the top of it's head and it is called a parietal eye.
On the site it said we had to write 3 reasons why you don't want or want predators here in NZ. Here are my 3 reasons.
Reason 1. I don't want predators in NZ because they might scare all our native birds away.
Reason 2. Because they might damage trees and places.
Reason 3. They might eat our native birds and if they do then we won't have anymore to see and we might forget about them.
That was my blog post for today. I hope you enjoyed it. Bye.
