- A small flightless green parrot. It is nocturnal and counts itself among the longest-lived birds.
Kakapo are small, flightless parrots who appear in a number of temperate biomes. A lone kakapo may occasionally appear in the map and do little else but meander around adorably – they are kea, except without all the bad parts. In adventure mode, male kakapo are one of the few creatures in the game who can be listened to from a distance, with the game describing their booms and chings as the player approaches them.
Kakapo can be captured with cage traps and trained into low-value pets. They can be used to produce a meager quantity of eggs, which is likely the most suitable use for them, as tearing the adorable thing apart only provides enough meat to fill up six dwarves for a season. Kakapo are among the longest-living animals in the game, some living up to 120 years, which makes them actually quite long-lasting companions to dwarves who adopt them.
Some dwarves like kakapo for their longevity, their flightlessness and their booming calls.
