KAKAPO PARROTS - Kakapo Jayne

Jayne Nelson, editor of Total Film magazine and contributor to SFX magazine just lurvs Kakapo Parrots...
I love kakapo.

I love them so much I know their Latin name, Strigops habroptilus, without looking it up. I love them so much I once named a canary after them. I love them so much I sometimes listen to their calls on my CD player while I'm washing up. I even have a list of all their names pinned to the wall of my kitchen. My favourite (though I've never met him, and probably never will) is a kakapo called Gumboots who was caught in the wild in 1988.
