Most New Zealanders will easily recognise and identify our unique wildlife – whether it’s a tree wētā, common dolphin or a kiwi. We know quite a lot about them – how and where they live, what they do, what they eat and so on.
But what makes them tick? What does an insect’s eye actually see? Does an earthworm have ‘guts? Does the flightless kiwi have any wings under all those feathers?
Author and illustrator Dave Gunson delves deep inside some of our best-known species to see what’s really going on in there, and to find out just how our native creatures work.
