As a species, kookaburras do not eat eggs. However, there are always individual exceptions to the rule, and no doubt some kookaburras have been observed eating eggs. Kookaburras prefer live game. They are, are carnivorous, feeding on invertebrates such as insects, Spiders, worms, centipedes and crustaceans. They also eat vertebrates such as reptiles, fish, frogs and even small birds and mammals. Kookaburras have been observed catching a snake or lizard, carrying it up into the trees, and vigorously beating it on a branch or dropping it to kill it.

No. Kookaburras do not and cannot eat people.


Yes. Kookaburras are birds and, like all birds, lay eggs in order to reproduce.


dingoes will eat fledglings and injured kookaburras


No, because they live in different places and would not meet. Coyotes will eat birds and bird eggs.


Like all birds, kookaburras lay eggs. The incubation period of the eggs is around 24 days.


No. Kookaburras are carnivorous.


Yes. Kookaburras incubate their eggs by sitting on them. Both the male and female sit on the eggs, sharing their incubation duties.


Kookaburras average 2-3 eggs per clutch. They may lay as many as four eggs.


Most certainly. If kookaburras did not reproduce, nwould would not be any kookaburras now. This is how species are perpetuated. Kookaburras reproduce by laying eggs, as all birds do. They usually lay three eggs, two days apart, and the eggs hatch in 24-29 days, depending on the species.


No. Rabbits are too large for kookaburras.


During breeding season, kookaburras lay up to three eggs, usually two days apart.


Native predators of kookaburras include quolls, birds of prey and pythons. Introduced animals which hunt and eat kookaburras are cats and foxes.


Kookaburras are birds. They lay eggs, have feathers and are warm blooded.Kookaburras are members of the kingfisher family.


Kookaburras could, conceivably, eat moths. Kookaburras are carnivorous, feeding on invertebrates such as insects, spiders, worms, centipedes and crustaceans. They also eat vertebrates such as reptiles, fish, frogs and even small birds and mammals. Moths tend to be nocturnal, and kookaburras are diurnal, so this would limit whether or not kookaburras ate moths.


Laughing kookaburras' eggs and the Blue-winged kookaburras' eggs are about 46mm x 35 mm, or the size of a chicken's egg. The Spangled kookaburra, a smaller species, lays eggs around the size of a bantam chicken's eggs.


As kookaburras are birds, they do not have "pregnancy". After being laid, the eggs are incubated for 24-29 days, depending on the species of kookaburra.


Like all birds, they lay eggs.


Kookaburras lay their eggs in tree hollows, which they sometimes may enlarge with their strong beaks. They will also hollow out old termite mounds for nests. Here, they lay up to three eggs, usually two days apart. Blue-winged kookaburras also make their nests in the soft bark of the baobab tree.


Kookaburras have been known to eat smaller birds and the young chicks of other birds, although they prefer other foods.


No. Kookaburras do not eat any vegetation. Kookaburras are carnivorous, feeding on invertebrates such as insects, spiders, worms, centipedes and crustaceans. They also eat vertebrates such as reptiles, fish, frogs and even small birds and mammals. Kookaburras have been observed catching a snake or lizard, carrying it up into the trees, and vigorously beating it on a branch or dropping it to kill it.


No. Kookaburras do not prey on or eat echidnas. Kookaburras prefer smaller prey, and are especially fond of invertebrates such as worms, spiders, insects and insect larvae, as well as snakes, lizards, small mammals and birds if the opportunity arises.


Kookaburras lay an average of 3-4 eggs at intervals of 2 days apart.


Blue-winged Kookaburras are birds. As such, like all birds, they reproduce by laying eggs. The kookaburra does not build a nest out of sticks and/or grass. Kookaburras lay up to three eggs in a nest they hollow out of an old termite nest, or a hollow already in a tree, which they will sometimes enlarge with their strong beaks.


they are opportunistic hunters so they eat when ever prey is caught


Yes. Eagles do eat kookaburras, given the opportunity. However, eagles prefer wide open spaces for hunting, and are more interested in pursuing mammals. Kookaburras tend to stay in bushland, where there is not enough space for the eagles' wingspan to hunt effectively.
