Anatomy: The kookaburra is up to 18.5 inches (47 cm) long and weighs about 1 pound (0.5 kg). The bill is up to 4 inches (10 cm) long.
Diet: The kookaburra is a carnivore (meat-eater). It eats large insects, earthworms, small reptiles, and amphibians. After catching prey, the kookaburra pounds it against a tree branch or rock, probably in order to tenderize the meat. The kookaburra doesn't drink any water; it gets enough water from the food it eats.
Eggs and Nests: Kookaburras usually nest in a hole in a tree. Females lay 2-4 white eggs in each clutch (a set of eggs laid at one time). The eggs hatch in 24 - 26 days.
