Furby first member of species hatched at Zoo
BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA –A tawny frogmouth chick, unofficially known as “Furby,” hatched at Brevard Zoo on Saturday, May 28.
Furby is the first member of its species to hatch at the Zoo.
Furby’s parents, Nathan and Hotdog, have yet to successfully hatch a chick at the facility; this is why Furby is being hand-reared by animal care staff.
The sex is unknown at this time.
Tawny frogmouths are native to Australia, where they are found in a variety of ecosystems.
They are carnivorous and will consume small mammals, reptiles and insects. You can CLICK HERE to watch the video.
