Take 14 of New Zealand's best-loved native animals, split them down the middle and what do you get? Nearly 200 crazy Kiwi combos, from rare to wacky. Mix and match for hours of fun.

Funny pictures of 'Moretaras', 'tuaporks', 'seawis' and 'ki-lions' are teamed up with similarly mismatched poems: 'My beak has nostrils at the end; it s useful I suppose. But don't you think it's kind of weird to suck food up your nose? If I'm a female, I'm a 'cow', although I never moo; A male's a 'bull', but kids are 'pups'. Does that make sense to you?'
