    The kiwi bird would answer you that it's "kiwi".

    Kiwi. Simple (: (and we also use it for the fruit)

    No - please - it is "kiwi" and "kiwifruit". I do not want to eat a big hairy bird.

    You can give that answer to any post here on the forum.

    There are no kiwis in Australia! (Unless you mean the people - in which case there are about half a million).

    Kiwi are people from New Zealand not Australia. Also i was wrong because the kiwi austral is a kind of kiwi living in the north of new zealand. The word for kiwi is just kiwi.

    The scientific name is "Apteryx australis" - or in Maori "tokoeka" - and in English "The southern brown kiwi". It is found in the South Island - not the North Island. The North Island kiwi is the Apteryx mantelli (and there are several other species).
