What a beauty he is.
awwh i love this beauty pink pup so much <3
Sound like a wonderful, loving bird to add to your family. The article says they can be noisy. Have you found this to be true with Dante? It also says they live a long life, but not exactly how long...do you know how long they live? I have always wanted a African Gray...but boyfriend is not fond of the idea...course he wasn't fond of getting a dog either, and look at him now...two dogs he loves more then all else! HaHaHa!
A Galah's life span is about 40 years. In an *ideal* environment, they can reach 60. Their life span can end up being much shorter, if they are not given proper care. I just love them from my learning about Dante de Rose. He is SO SOCIAL, super smart and interractive. lol he also follows me like a puppy would when he is out of his bird house <3 and loves loves loves to sit on my sholder. He does not like to sit away from humans. When we are eating on the table in the dinning room, he will go to his food bowl and eat along too. I never understood parrots until we met Dante who never stops to amaze us.
African Grey are more talkative where as Galahs are medium talkers. Dante de Rose will talk when he wants the attention or when he is bored. He isn't too noisey. If he was bored, he would make some noise, but if you keep him busy when he is bored, he will not make a peep
so overall, he isn't noisey, really and only makes it if he is bored or when he is in a noisey environment. We got him lots of chewable wooden toys. He LOVES to chew and that is how he gets occupied. Otherwise, with one of us. Or just sleeping/chilling. So we don't notice him noisey. The better you raise them, the better parrots they become.
Did I mention that they love to party?
... Dante de Rose LOVES to party. The other day, I was checking on a dancing game that belongs to Wii in YouTube.com. I checked on its review and clicked on play to the video when I heard Dante sings AND dances ... honestly, cracked me up!!!! if you make some noise and party, he will party along LOL bellow was the song that i had on when I discovered that he loves to party. I filmed him dancing with the song and singing along by blabbing out the lyrics in his own language...you can watch him if you like to bellow...
By the way, they can ALSO learn tricks. I taught Dante how to Shake finger(hand), waves and kisses on command. I took a video of that. Once i put the clips together, I will share here so that you can see him performs
super adorable pink pup I find him.
haha @boyfriend's reaction before getting pup and after. I think you will succeed with a birdie at home too ^_^
