Critter of the Week: Ngaio weevil

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:30 pm on 13 December 2019

This week’s (and penultimate for the year!) critter is the Ngaio weevil, a giant flightless weevil found only on Stephen’s Island, where it lives precariously and probably very carefully around 30,000 predatory tuatara.
