Tarzan, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tarzan
Age: Six years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Solomon Island Eclectus
Home: Reno, Nevada, USA
   Hi! This is my Solomon Island Eclectus - Tarzan. He turned six years old on October 7, 2003. We live in Reno, Nevada, USA. This particular shot took me several weeks to get as he does not put his head upside down that often, but the first time I saw him do it I just had to get a shot so my patience finally paid off!

    He is the sweetest boy ever and loves me almost as much as I love him. He has a fairly large vocabulary, but he mostly says 'come here!' whenever I leave the room because he is mostly just happy if I am in the room with him. One of his favorite things is his night song that I sing him before he goes to bed. You know the one... "Rock-a-bye Tarzan, in the tree-top..." He just gazes at me while I sing him the night song two or three times then he fluffs up and settles in for the night. He is potty-trained so he can go anywhere without worry of accidents, and he's quite the little dancer, too!
