Interesting Facts About the Cockatoo
- There are probably 21 species of cockatoos, most of which are of the genus Cacatua. Although they originate in Australia, their name, it is thought, comes from a Malay word. Many are coloured in white, but others come in greys and pinks, blacks, and sometimes deep blue.
- They can live for 40-60 years. There have been some reported cases of cockatoos living to be over 100, but most of these are unsubstantiated Cockatoos have a much more restricted range than the true parrots, occurring naturally only in Australia and nearby islands. Eleven of the 21 species exist in the wild only in Australia, while seven species occur in Indonesia, New Guinea, and other south Pacific islands. Three species occur in both New Guinea and Australia.
- As pets they can be very friendly and amiable, although some have been known to be destructive and extremely noisy. They do not learn to speak as well as their cousins, the parrot. Cockatoos are in the bracket of being endangered species. In our video, Snowball shows his love for the music of the Backstreet Boys.
Cockatoo Tries to Hatch Chocolate EggsA cockatoo at a wildlife sanctuary has spent a fortnight trying to hatch a bowl of chocolate eggs. Pippa has been protecting the chocolates since she was taken outside, put on a table and saw them. Her home is at the at Nuneaton and Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary in England. Her owner, Geoff Grewcock, reports, 'She went straight over, climbed on the crème eggs and that was it. She thinks they're her eggs. Until she clicks they're not real eggs, we'll just leave her there.' The 17-year-old cockatoo, who has been at the sanctuary for about four years, is expected to live until the age of 70. 'She's got so much character it's unbelievable. She hates men, we've had a builder in who had his neck bitten. We had to prise Pippa's beak off his neck. When she attacks you, she attacks your ear lobe - she goes straight through them. We do free ear piercing here. She's ever so comical - always has been,' adds Geoff Grewcock.
