New Zealand is AWESOME!
The animals in New Zealand are super cool! My favorite is the Bluebottle jellyfish or Portuguese Man O' War (named after a Portuguese battle ship). They can get up to 30 feet long! Their tentacles carry poison which paralyzes their prey.
I also think the Whio Blue Duck is really cool because when he calls it sounds like "whi-o, whi-o". The Whio duck is also a really great swimmer. They can swim up raging rapids without any problem thanks to their very large, webbed feet.
The Kaikoura Peninsula was awesome! This is where the deep blue sea of the Pacific meets the snowy peaks of the Southern Alps. I am heading up the mountains with my skis and my shovel to build some sick jumps! Frances is bringing here camera to hopefully get some amazing pictures. I don't know about Frances, but I just DON'T want to leave!Cody
