The pink cockatoo is a medium-sized parrot measuring about 35 cm, characterized by an erectile crest. It’s a very intelligent, social animal, that lives in flocks and forms with its partner a stable and lasting emotional bond that will last for a lifetime. If well cared for, he can live 40 years.
Distribution: native to Australia, usually occupies open grassy areas and forages on the soil.
Feeding: seeds, pellet specific for parrots, to supplement fresh fruits and vegetables, corn, rice and cooked pasta.
It’s a very lonely parrot, so if the host family can’t spend a lot of time on it, it’s good to take two (even of the same sex.)
