So you had to wait, hah? by woxys So you had to wait, hah? by woxys
Finally! I was not able to take a photo of this fantastic parrot for years. This is nothing special, I hope better shots migh come ;)


Hyacinth Macaw (Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus, ara hyacintovy) from ZOO Prague, Czech republic. Wonderful parrot :aww:

____________


INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: Hyacinth Macaw (Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus)
Location: near rivers in Brazilian / Amazonian rainforests
Size: 100 cm long body, 140 cm wingspan weight: 2 kg
Diet: fruit, nuts, coconuts, seeds, but also small animals
Conservation status: Endangered
Interesting facts: Hyacinth macaw is the biggest parrot on Earth | hyacinth macaw can live 80 years! | those parrots live in pairs or in small groups. They usually have two or three babies and parents care for them for five months | the amazing colour of their body almost killed those amazing and wonderful macaws. Humans were hunting hyacinth macaws to sell them, as many collectors were ready to pay crazy amounts of money just to gain one of these parrots. Fortunately, some special program was started and now native people gain more money, when they show Hyacinth macaws to tourists in the nature, so they have no reason to catch and sell those magical birds :nod:

Many of these birds are now captively bred to hit the pouching industry. I recall when I was younger seeing them in some pet stores, now a days though these birds are probably threatened by the fact that even one of them can sell for 10,000 to 15,000 dollars. So they are probably one of the most exotic of birds you'll ever see. So beautiful, and extremely friendly even if they can break metal >.> I'm not really sure how the laws are now a days, but I think there is some heafty regulations on ownership and where they are obtained from. It's all the better though as it protects these birds.

My mistake on the price, they can get that expensive. just usually that's for proven pairs and such.

The title is totally true to the picture. I could really see the parrot saying that as he idly nibbles his toes. :XD: Awesome photo, amazing colors and light. :)

I feel a sad that we didn't take such good care of them. But that goes for all endangered creatures.

Why were you not able to take a picture of him/her?
