Pet Pop Quiz Answer

This parrot species is one of my favorites. Their quiet intelligence just appeals to me. I included a video of one of the most well known parrots of this species. It’s a clip from a movie that is coming out about him. After watching it, does it change how you think about birds?

 

Q: What parrot species is known as the most intelligent?

A: The African Grey has earned the reputation of being the most intelligent parrot. One of the most famous African Greys was Alex. He showed the world that animals besides primates have the ability for communication and higher cognitive function.

I love learning about animals. The armadillo I met at the pet expo on Sunday was the first one I ever saw up close. While I’ve seen chinchillas before and know some about them I always seem to learn something new.

 

Q: What do chinchillas do when they are frightened and that helps them get away from predators?

A: Chinchillas loose some of their fur to get away.  This is called fur slip.

Pet Pop Quiz

It was an awesome weekend here in Northeast PA. Beautiful weather to spend watching monarch butterflies being released to make their way south on Saturday and walk around a pet expo on Sunday. I spent some time gawking at an armadillo brought by one group to educate people on different animals. They also had a chinchilla so I thought a chin question would be good for this week.

Pet Pop Quiz Answer

Did you the species of parrot in this week’s Pet Pop Quiz? Did you ever have one? I did. His name was  Turkey and he was the first bird I owned. While he never talked he was a character and a great ambassador of the species. One of my mom’s friends who was terrified of birds adopted one of Turkey’s babies for her 2 kids and fell absolutely in love.  Love when that happens!

Q: This little bird is one of the smallest parrot species and the most popular. But what it lacks in size it makes up for in talking ability as it’s known as one of the best talking parrot species. What is the name of parrot?

 

A: Most people in the US know this species as the parrakeet, but it’s also known as the budgerigar or budgie for short. One budgie made it into the Guinness Book of World Records for being able to speak 1728 words.
