About Us
Tanqueray, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tanqueray
Age: Seven years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Moluccan Cockatoo
Home: Eastern North Carolina, USA
   My name is Tanqueray, Tango for short, and I'm a Moluccan Cockatoo. Commadore sent me, and he has a whole bunch of my pictures on his site. His dad, Evan, created all sorts of buttons using my beautiful face, so I know I'm special. You'll notice my face all over the place because I am famous. Yes folks, that is really me in those pictures. I am the most beautiful bird on the premises, just ask me and I'll tell ya. Who else holds his head up and can fluff up as big and pretty. Thank you, I knew you'd agree. And my mom let me have my own website.

    Mom and Dad think this is their home, but I've got news for them!!!! This is where I live and where I rule the roost! Mom has made a wonderful website to introduce all our family and let me be the spokesperson. So if you have a little time to check out the site, there's a lot of info and more pictures of me. And you'll be able to see a couple of the wonderful buttons that Commadore's dad made for me, of me!

    Tango's Mom: Moluccans are pretty much in demand for their color (salmon pinkish with a darker salmon colored crest) and for their personality. Cockatoos are super loveable and the Moluccans are just big enough to squeeze like a pillow! Taken care of, and treated kindly, Moluccans make wonderful and very faithful pets. Tango was our second bird about eight years ago, and now we are full fledged avian breeders, with everything from the smallest of conures, all the way up to the Scarlet Macaws. He has introduced us to a whole new world. And we love him very much!

    Please check out Tango's site cause I think you'll really enjoy it!
