Yes they are endangered, but we are looking after them. There are still some in the wild, but cats make it very hard for them.
We also have them in zoos, of course, in specially darkened Kiwi houses...because they are used to dense native forest where it is dark.

What about back in the 50's when hip guys were "cool cats"? And let's not forget the "dawg". As in Snoop doggy.

I thought Aussies called girls "Sheila"...which is just a name... but yeah, girls are called chicks here, and we are right next door to the Aussies. But as for all the animal names for girls; I could be really Theological and say it was because Adam was given naming rights by God grinning smiley, or I think more correctly, it's because you girls are so cute, that we liken you to another cute thing...a small furry animal will do.
Hysterical

I just remember from a time some friends went "down under"...they came back home calling us girls "kiwis" cause anything that the Aussies did was cool so they had to do it too! smiling smiley LOL! I've also heard Ausssies call them "sheila" too...seems they have several nicknames. But then so do we..."americans" I mean! smiling smiley

I think it's a WWII poster. I found a whole bunch of NZ posters from the WW!! era & I wish I could post the link but it won't work. There were lots of patriotic slogans and kiwis all over the place.

My husband told me that calling a girl a "sheila" in Australia isn't a very complimentary term. Can any Aussies confirm that?

This Kiwi is one my son showed me years ago, I thought it was sad.

That IS sad.

Then I went & watched a youtube version with the song "Mad World", which makes it even sadder, so don't do that.

He is very cute though.
