A kea is a parrot native to the alpine and forested areas of the South Island of New Zealand. Theyre notorious for attacking parked cars and chewing up rubber like the windshield wipers and gaskets around the doors. They are also accused of killing sheep, but they may only be scavangers of sheep killed by other predators. The birds have the ability to kill other animals. Like most parrots, they are highly intelligent and have demonstrated the ability to solve logic puzzles and use teamwork to accomplish tasks.
