Sulphur crested cockatoo can hold their food in one foot and break pieces off of it with the other foot. Aren’t they clever?
The sulphur crested cockatoo can live up to 70 years in captivity.
These birds produce a very fine powder to waterproof themselves instead of oil as many other creatures do.
The sulphur crested cockatoo uses its crest for communication. A raised crest expresses curiosity, excitement, surprise, fear or frustration. A lowered crest can indicate calmness and friendliness.
