Svante, the Pet of the Day
Name: Svante
Age: Six months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Pacific parrotlet
(forpus coelestis)
Home: Gothenburg, Sweden
   Meet our parrotletboy, Svante. He is a small (15 cm, 30 grams) and charming little parrot who sometimes thinks he's a human and the boss of the house. He is fearless and full of undying energy while swinging on his toys and chewing on anything that he thinks is chewable.

    Sometimes he has to show that he is the boss by delivering his special brand of "parrotlet acupuncture" to the nape of the neck or to the fingers of anyone who decides to interrupt him in his adventures around the house.

    He is always filling our home with his cheerful parrotlet chatter and kissing sounds, and is not shy about voicing his opinion on any number of subjects.

   He has a "big parrot" attitude in a tiny body.
