I am approximately 35 cm in length, I can live 20 to 30 years of age. A DNA test is necessary to determine my sex.
I am mostly green of color. My belly is a mixture of orange and green. The top of my head and the contour of my eyes are redish orange. My tail is a blend of green, olive and blue. I also have some blue on my wings.
I am very playful, affectionate and love to cuddle. I am more calm than my cousin the Sun Conure and I am also a better talker. I love to learn tricks and this will also strengthen our relationship.
I am a Conure so I can be noisy, so I am not recommended for appartement dwelling. The early morning and late evening is when I vocalize the most. If I am frightened or over excited or I see danger, I will vocalize. With a good education, my vocalization will be diminished. Remember I am a parrot and not a fish. I need many hours with you per day. Take me out of my cage often and I will not be as noisy. Don't take me out if I scream or I will keep screaming for you to take me out. I can be nippy as I mature and during the love season, a good education is a must.
Like all my parrot friends I need to chew things. If I have enough toys, I will be less likely to damage your belongings. I also love to forage in my cage, this keeps me quiet and occupied. I really love water, I need a minimum of 3 a week, but not at night because I could catch cold. Be careful of toilettes and kitchen sinks, baths and showers etc. Water is like a magnet for me.
I am a parrot from Bresil.
