Unlike any other native New Zealand bird the Pukeko can run really fast on land. This is because they have long, stringy legs. Flying is quite a difficulty for the Pukeko because they aren't use to flying, but a remarkable thing is , is that once a Pukeko flew 240 km from where it lived.
The Pukekos enemies are the Ferret, stoat and weasel. These animals are all from the same family, because they are all viscous little predators. Their skin colors are a golden brown. They all have little canes that stick out of their mouths. The surprising thing is , is that people are it's enemies too. People shoot pukekos during duck shooting season.
I think that people should stop shooting Pukekos and start respecting them as a native New Zealand bird.
