The Kori Bustard is a large bird that is found in parts of Africa. They are the heaviest living birds on the continent and can weigh up to 40 pounds! Despite their size, they are able to run quickly and even jump high into the air to catch their prey.

Kori Bustards eat a variety of things, but mainly insects, reptiles, and small mammals. They are known for their loud calls, which can be heard from up to a mile away. These calls are used to communicate with other bustards as well as warn predators of their presence.

Kori Bustards are monogamous birds, meaning they mate with one partner for life. After mating, the female will lay 1-3 eggs in a nest that she builds herself. The eggs will incubate for about 28 days, and the chicks will stay with their parents for up to 9 months.

Kori Bustards are considered to be a vulnerable species due to habitat loss and hunting. However, they are also listed as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List, which means they are not currently facing any major threats to their survival.
