Priced at about $14,000, the Hyacinth Macaw is considered the largest parrot in the world – 95cm long, weighing about 1.7kg. Parakeets are quite tame, quiet and make great pets.
They are native to eastern and central South America. However, the number in the wild of this parrot species has plummeted due to human preference for pet birds.
A special feature in Hyacinth Macaw is that it has a very hard beak, capable of pecking through the coconut shell.
This bird is known for its striking cobalt blue plumage, bright golden rings around its eyes, and a long, curved black tail.
Because of this beautiful color, Hyacinth Macaw is also known as the “blue parrot”.
This is a very popular bird for both beauty and intelligence, which can be trained as a pet in the house.
If domesticated, well-communicated from a young age, Macaw Hyacinth will be quite open with owners, even strangers.
They are sweet, gentle, do not like to make noise as well as love to play and are attached to the family, especially they are very friendly with children.
In the pet world, they have a very “admirable” age of up to 60 years.
