Kookaburras live in pairs or small family groups.
Kookaburras are carnivorous, preying on small mammals, snakes and birds.
Kookaburras live in pairs. Females lay clutches of two to four eggs in tree cavities, and eggs are incubated by both parents. Chicks leave the nest approximately 30 days after hatching. Offspring may remain with the adults to rear other chicks. Kookaburras can live into their 20s.
