This is Elvis. Don't be fooled by his diminutive size; he's a vicious beast. His buddy, Onen, isn't in the picture because he hates me and tries to kill me every time I go near him. But Elvis and I get along just fine. He likes to sit on my chest while I watch TV, and clean my teeth. And we take showers together. His wings aren't clipped, but he doesn't fly away. I guess he likes his little parrot snacks enough to stick around. If you're thinking about getting a parrot for a pet, please don't. Elvis is a conure, specifically, and conures are terrible pets. They need to be in the jungle.
