The Crested Ibis is type of an Avian Friend that has made appearances in nearly all Kemono Friends media to date.

Appearance

Crested Ibis has a soft, fluffy tail and pale yellow eyes and lacks highlights, a feature typically only portrayed by Extinct Friends. Like other avian friends, she has white wings on her head that fade to salmon. Her hair is white and wispy, with long side bangs that transition from crimson-charcoal. She wears an over-sized white button shirt, accompanied by a pink ruffled collar and thin rope ribbon. On her legs, she wears a pink pleated skirt, as well as leggings of a darker hue underneath. Her gloves and cuffs of her sleeves are the same shade of pink. Covering her feet are a pair of black mary-janes.

In Real Life

The Crested Ibis, also referred to as Japanese Crested Ibis or Toki, is a large member of the Ibis subfamily, and the only member of the genus Nipponia. Once roaming an expansive range over east Asia, the Crested Ibis is now the undisputed most endangered of it's subfamily due to deforestation, only being able to survive in small populations in Shaanxi, China.

Toki in breeding plummage

The species has many definitive physical features, such as their bare heads, curved beaks, red facial skin, and beautiful crests. Their plumage color varies depending on the time of year. During breeding season, their feathers change to a medley of greys, which would otherwise be a bright white.

Crested Ibis follows an interesting niche, traveling between habitats depending on their current needs. They build nests and breed in the tall trees of pine forests, and move to wetlands and agricultural areas for foraging. They feed almost exclusively off small marine mammals, such as fish, crabs, beetles, mollusks, and frogs.
