ANIMAL FACTS - Exotic Parrots

Macaws travel in flocks, like other parrots, often screeching extremely loudly.

Crikey - More Animal Facts!

Parrots are characterized by their curved beak shape and for having four toes on each foot - two facing the front and two facing the back. This gives them the dexterity that they are well known for and often utilize their feet to hold food items. Parrots are found world wide, although most are distributed throughout the warmer parts of the world, including India, South-east Asia and West Africa.

The majority of the species live in Australasia, South America and Central America. Parrots are also emotionally and intellectually advanced and most species are said to have the intelligence of at least a two year old child. For this reason they are typically not good pets and require specific care and constant stimuli to ensure they remain healthy in mind and body.
