Okinawa Rail is a type of Friend that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game.

In Real Life

A candy-red bill, curving white head stripe, and lacey black-and-white striping make this a unique and attractive species. Found only in and around the Yanbaru Forest on Okinawa Island, where it forages on the forest floor, often in pairs or small flocks. Most frequently seen as it crosses roads, trails, and clearings. Gives a variety of different calls, typically given during dusk, dawn, or nighttime hours. All are somewhat terrifying, a medley of shrill yelps, high-pitched squeals, and a laughter-like clattering.

They lay 4 to 5 white eggs with brown spots in May. The length of the egg is 4.9cm and the maximum diameter is 3.7cm. It feeds on lizards, amphibians, snails and large insects such as locusts. Food is mainly taken from the forest floor but may also be taken from shallow water.

It is threatened by the loss and fragmentation of its forest habitat due to logging, agriculture and the building of roads, dams and golf courses. Introduced predators such as cats, dogs and the small Asian mongoose probably have an impact while some birds are killed by vehicles on roads.


  • The Okinawa Rail cannot fly because their wings are small compared to their body weight, and the muscles for moving them are not well developed.
  • They climb trees in the evening and sleep on a thick branch growing laterally.
