Love Is In The Air!

Frosty the kiwi seems to have a spring in his step in this video! Our kiwi keepers presumed that he was pretty excited about breeding season as he is seen preparing his nest! You can also see Pātai, a female kiwi, come and inspect his hard work! 

Our kiwi keepers were right.... love was definitely in the air for Frosty and Pātai! She laid her 8th egg on Wednesday and we are happy to confirm that Frosty is now sitting on the egg and looking after it beautifully!
