Zazu, the Pet of the Day
Name: Zazu
Age: Four years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Blue & Gold Macaw
Home: Fort Worth, Texas, USA
   This is Zazu, a Blue & Gold Macaw. He's about four years old. He has a huge vocabulary and never ceases to amuse and amaze us with his personality and sense of humor. He announces bedtime every night at dusk, and won't stop until everyone leaves 'his room.' At that point he whispers "I love you, Night Night."

    Zazu lives with eight other birds and his two humans. Zazu is the leader of the bird room. He calls each of the other birds by name, and if they are misbehaving, he tells on them. For example, he will say "Tango, where are you going?" if Tango gets off his play stand... or "Bogey BAD BIRD" if Bogey is bothering Nub on his cage. Also, when Zazu says it's time for "nite nite," the other birds go to bed. When the phone rings, either for real or on TV, Zazu says "hello" and proceeds to carry on a one sided conversation. He has a huge vocabulary and knows exactly what he's saying. He is also loveable and likes to be rocked like a baby, and play this little piggy...finishing up with a loud "wheeeee" for the 'all the way home part.'
