Tangelo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tangelo
Age: Four years old
Gender: Male
Kind: White Bellied Caique
Home: West Virginia, USA
   Tangelo is a white bellied caique. Tangie came to me as a foster bird along with three others, a Blue & Gold Macaw and two Swainson Lorikeets. The owners found homes for the other three birds, but I could not part with Tangelo. He bonded with me the first day I had him. He is a total clown and always makes me laugh. He likes to hang upside down and slide down my chest backwards. He climbs inside my shirt at the bottom and climbs out the neck of my shirt. I have taken him to school classes for small kids and he thrills them all. He is quite the acrobat and does crazy tricks in his cage. He is one of sixteen birds, but the only clown.
