Zoologist Gets Shagged By Endangered Parrot

One of the world's few flightless parrots, the Kakapo is endemic to New Zealand and is notable for having parrot sex with this guy's head.

This is basically Benny's dream date. Thanks to reader Heather H. for sending along.

It would be an honour to be violated by a Kakapo, and then have Stephen Fry make witty remarks about it!

that was hysterical. nice work.

The original "Last Chance to See" was in book form, written mostly by the late and sorely missed Douglas Adams. I wonder what he would have had to say. As I recall, his Kakapo encounter involved more blood but less total body fluids...

No wonder they're endangered. LMAO.

Bjoern, you're assuming quite a bit when you propose that more access to the wider literature will allow reporters to aquaint themselves more broadly within a field. Most often, stories are written on a tight deadline, disallowing exhaustive literature searches. In addition, there is little incentive to dig really deep since although this week's story may be on Ida the fossil, next week's story might be on Zippy the Alzheimer's disease mouse.

OMG... I can die now. Something I sent in got posted on Zoologix. :D :D

/swoon

Thanks guys. I think you are sick, mad-geniuses. ;-p
