Newest Kiwi at the Columbus Zoo
The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium has achieved another significant first with the successful hatching of a North Island brown kiwi (Apteryx mantelli) on Mar. 23, 2011. The Columbus Zoo is only the third zoo in North America to successfully hatch a kiwi chick since the first one hatched at Smithsonian's National Zoo in 1975 and this chick is only the fifth kiwi to successfully hatch in as many years.
The Zoo could be looking for a name for the little kiwi and doesn't everyone think that Duncan could be a perfect name if it's a male.
