||One year old|
||Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA|
is a one-year-old Mollucan Cockatoo. He lives in Virginia
Beach, Virginia. His species comes from the Mollucan Islands in
Indonesia. Kalaya loves to dance around, bobbing his head back and
forth while he chatters noisily. He is very playful, and enjoys
running around the house with his best friend, our pet Chihuahua.
Kalaya was sick as a baby, and could have died. Luckily, steps were
taken to make him healthy again, and now he is very strong and
active. But, Kalaya is still a big baby. Because of his sickness, he
learned to do things at a slower pace, like eating seeds and nuts.
Kalaya is still learning how to crack open nuts to enjoy the tasty
Large parrots love to shred wood with their powerful beaks, and
Kalaya had this trick figured out long ago. We give him huge wooden
toys to tear up, and he shreds through them within a week. Sometimes
he outsmarts us and will cut through ropes that hold several large
wooden blocks; the thud from the blocks dropping to the bottom of his
cage can be heard upstairs! Kalaya can be visited at his
where he tells more about himself and his family.
