The 'night parrot' or kakapo parrot from New Zealand is quite bizarre, particularly because it can be more sexually attracted to humans than its own species! The article definitely makes me want to do more research on this bird.
Yes, I remember watching this on the BBC. It was so funny, still makes me chuckle now. I loved the entire 'Last Chance to See' series. Mark Carwardine (the guy getting attacked) is so knowledgeable and passionate about his subject; and of course Stephen Fry, one of the funniest and cleverest people in Britain, if not the world. Thanks for the link Shaddie.
