I will update on the matter. Have to use external zoom cause the bird always flying away. I'll use the digital camera instead of my mobile phone.

Of course they looks like a "dinosaur". Its the most primitive parrots, which lives in isolation in Madagascar and surrounding islands for million of years. Ive read on the internet stated that the birds do have good pet quality. Not so many of them in our aviculture actually. Their feathers are quite messy because of insufficient nutrition and lack of care from the previous keeper at the park. Im going to help the birds to gain back their health and beauty. But still cant find enough information on the internet. Really "blur" on the care and husbandry of the species actually. Wish me luck! :)

haha..okok...wish u good luck~~
