New Zealand

New Zealand -- a fairytale archipelago with a turbulent geological past. A land with astonishing creatures; flightless birds and creatures of the night; living fossils and dinosaurs... Evolution has run wild on this land of isolation and today some of the world's most unusual animals can be found only in New Zealand.
