Moluccan CockatooMoluccan Cockatoo

Moluccan cockatoo is salmon pink in colour and fairly large. The Moluccan Cockatoo is the largest of the "white" cockatoos. The Moluccan Cockatoo is endemic to Seram and surrounding islands, which are located in the Indonesian archipelago also known as the Moluccas or Spice Islands. It has a very strong, powerful beak and a very loud voice. A Moluccan cockatoo is generally not suitable as pets. However, if it can be well trained, it becomes a very cuddly pet.

The Moluccan cockatoo is a very intelligent and sensitive bird. As a pet, it needs regular interaction with its human flocks, and it needs mental stimulation. A Moluccan cockatoo needs a good varied diet of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and pellets.

If you live in an apartment, don't think of keeping a Moluccan cockatoo as a pet. It is too noisy to be kept in an apartment. My Moluccan cockatoo was a baby when I moved into a sprawling house.

If you are the right person to adopt a Moluccan Cockatoo, you may well find that you've made a friend for life. It can mimic human speech. It's unusual in that the Moluccan cockatoo is one of the few "lap birds" and acts more like a dog than a bird sometimes. An untrained Moluccan is better off in the wild. But a trained one is a treasured possession. Is yours trained?
