Malawi 2-TAMBALA (KM8.1) Paradise-whydah
Malawi is home to the Eastern Paradise-whydah (aka the Long-Tailed Paradise-Whydah), and the Broad-tailed Paradise-whydah. Either could be pictured on this coin, and the design is probably representative of both species.
A type of Finch, they are quite small (~ 13 cm). However, during the mating season the males triple their length by growing a long tail.
