    A little bit tougher than Koola but not as chewy as Platypus Rams

    Only place i was able to see one live was Auckland zoo. New Zealand is overrun with ferals, which makes for great hunting, but the natives are very thin on the ground.
    They should do the same with the blue duck and the kiwi. I saw wild blue duck on a wayyy back country river up in the mountains, and then I saw how the zoo kept them.........
