      25 Animals That Could Go Extinct In Our Lifetime - The kakapo is the world’s fattest parrot and because of its weight issues, the only flightless parrot. Native to New Zealand, the European colonisation of the island bought cats and stouts with it. These birds are now critically endangered and only around 128 individuals remain on a few predator-free islands.

      The kakapo, the largest, flightless parrot from New Zealand and one of the rarest birds of all. There are only a few still alive...the result of the fact that they cannot fly and become prey for feral cats and other carnivorous animals.

Native to New Zealand, this flightless parrot feels its way through the forest night with a set of modified, whisker-like feathers. And, as Last Chance to See made clear, the avian formally known as Strigops habroptilus isn’t above embarrassing a nature documentary host in its own awkwardly choreographed way.

      Alongside the fastest, strongest, smartest animals are nature’s misfits, odd, bizarre and unlikely creatures that at first glance seem ill-equipped for survival. Left at the starting line in the race for life, these are the apparent losers in the story of evolution, yet somehow they manage to cling to life and in some cases even thrive.
