I believe that animals have personalities. Just take a trip through your garden or neighbourhood park, and you’ll see those personalities in action: The little silver-eyes for example are full of personality, some are very domineering and cheeky, while others are more docile and relaxed..and take the cheek in their stride. A miniature poodle in the park will march confidently into the middle of wrestling match among a pack of large dogs, while the mixed breed Labrador tentatively stays close to his owner’s leg.
Experts say some parrots can suffer depression when they are left home alone. Romain Pizzi, a specialist in animal medicine, notes that parrots will actually harm themselves during bouts of depression.
“Darwin himself argued that emotions exist in non-human animals, and his evolutionary theory suggests that behavioral traits, including personality, can evolve in just the same way as fins, wings and arms,” he said. “We should realize that studying the personality of animals could help us understand a lot about human personality.”
Observing our Sun conure’s “Sunshine” and our Maroon-bellied Conure “Bubbles” both hand raised…their different personalities are not hard to spot…they may be different breeds of conure, but they are both parrots. Sunshine is very outgoing, he is not afraid of anything and he will fly through the house like he owns it…He knows what he wants and he will go and get it…Bubbles will play quietly on the play gym and will tolerate Sunshine up to a point…calm but can be cheeky and playful when in the mood…
So feeling a little camera shy Sunshine…I don’t think so…
