Take a look at Tuhuru

Tuhuru was 286.1g when they were born at Willowbank Wildlife Reserve. By the time they came to the creche in February 2016, they were 655g and their bill was nearly 5cm long. By the time they left in February 2017, they weighed 1480g and their bill was 78.7mm long. We have this long video of Tuhuru, but we don’t know too much more about them. They live now in the Paparoa Range.
