Tera, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tera
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Sun Conure
Home: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
   Tera is definitely a special bird. He's very lovable (if very loud!), and he loves to be with people more than anything. No matter how many toys he has, he would rather be sitting inside someone's shirt chattering away. Even with clipped wings he manages to fly across the room to sit with his favorite humans. He's extremely hyper, loves to chew on wooden toys (or anything else within beak's reach) and hang upside down in his cage.

His best buddy is Echo the green cheek conure, and when they're not nipping at each other's toes they're preening each other's hard to reach spots. This is a picture of Tera when he was about four months old - he looks very different now! As sun conures tend to do, he's lost almost all of his green and is now mostly orange and yellow. They grow up so fast!
