The largest kingfisher in the world is the kookaburra with a total length of 28–42 cm or 11–17 in. Kookaburras (genus Dacelo) are terrestrial tree kingfishers found in Australia and New Guinea.

They are popularly known for their echoing human laughter, good-natured but rather hysterical, merriment in the case of the renowned Laughing Kookaburra. The distinctive sound of the Laughing Kookaburra has been used in many jungle sound soundtracks, used in filmmaking and television productions as well as certain Disney theme park attractions.

The 4 species of kookaburra are Rufous-bellied Kookaburra, Spangled Kookaburra, Blue-winged Kookaburra, Laughing Kookaburra. They will eat almost everything but they are usually fed in mice, birds, snakes, small reptiles and insects. When they are in the zoo, they eat dead baby chicks. They usually nest in a hollow high in a large tree. They lay between 2 and 4 eggs usually in spring.
