Land snail (Wainuia urnula) eating an earthworm

Ngata e kai noke ana

E 1,000 ngā momo ngata ki Aotearoa. Ko ētahi he pērā i te ringaringa o te tangata te rahi, heoi he pakupaku iho te nuinga pēnei i tēnei. He whero-parauri ētahi, he kōwhai ētahi, ka mutu he tōrino te āhua. Ko te nuinga ka noho ki te papa o te whenua. Ka kai noke ētahi ngata, pēnei i te Wainuiaunula nei.
