How they used to catch the now rare kakapo.

  1. Method for birds of prey (the predators that evolved alongside the kakapo): Look for a kakapo. No, you won't see it, it's sitting very very still with its eyes closed and matches the bush beautifully.
  2. Method for cats, dogs, stoats and other introduced mammalian predators: Smell the kakapo. Wait for it to sit very very still with its eyes closed.
  3. Method for humans: Go up to the bush a kakapo is sleeping in. Shake it. Pick up the kakapo that fall out.
