Toa tuatara (2 o 2)

Toa tuatara

Tērā te wā kapi katoa ai a Aotearoa i te tuatara; heoi, nā ngā ngeru, toriura, wīhara, aha atu rātou i kaikai kia whāiti ki ngā moutere ririki. He ora te wā o tō rātou ora, ko ētahi kua neke atu i te e 50 tau e mōkaitia ana. He rerekē te noho a te tuatara i ngā moutere ririki – ka noho kē rātou ki ngā rua tītī, ā, he wā anō ka noho tahi te tuatara me te tītī ki tō rāua kāinga.
