Kōrero: Nōnahea a Aotearoa nōhia tuatahitia ai?

Wheua moa

Wheua moa

Ko ēnei wheua o te waewae o te moa, nō tētahi wāhi kei te raki o Chinamans Bluff i ngā tahatika o te awa o Dart i Ōtākou. E 90 cm te roa o te rūri i waenganui i ngā wheua. Kitea ai ngā wheua moa ki ngā ahu otaota i ngā nohoanga o ngā tāngata tōmua rawa anake, kāore nō muri. Te āhua nei i patua te moa kia mate rawa atu e ngā tāngata tuatahi kia noho ki Aotearoa. Torutoru noa iho pea ngā whakatipuranga i rongo i te reka o te kiko moa.
