Malti Explains Redfoot Tortoises: Groceries

Redfoot tortoises are very smart. Not only can they go head-to-head on touch screen computer tests with dogs, rats, mice, chimps, black bears and other warm-blooded species, but they can solve mazes with the right motivation (which is always treats, of course). If I ever forget this, all I have to do is wait until … Continue reading Malti Explains Redfoot Tortoises: Groceries

Video Wednesdays: “Five Star Mac n Cheese”

It is a big responsibility to be feathery and famous and have flocks of fans (both feathered and featherless). You have so much to do – preening, showering, chowing, nesting, napping…..

Pearl Explains Parrots: Breakfast

Parrots can seem quite mystifying to the uninitiated. Both spontaneous and set in their ways, independent and clingy, daily life "with parrot" can take some getting used to (here, luckily there is "cuteness" to smooth the ride a bit!). One daily ritual whose importance simply cannot be over-stated is "parrot breakfast." Not only is the … Continue reading Pearl Explains Parrots: Breakfast

Tortoise Care Books & Resources

In the first few weeks after I brought Malti home, I spent most of my available free time: Panicking. Reading about red-foot tortoises on the internet. Checking her habitat every hour on the hour to make sure she was still alive. Super (scary) fun times. All that to say – while I am feeling more confident … Continue reading Tortoise Care Books & Resources

Malti’s Munchies

Malti LOVES to eat. She wasn’t picky when I first brought her home, but as she grows she is discovering more about what she likes best and least. This has made providing a nutritionally balanced diet a touch more challenging for her mommy. Ideally, at least half her diet should consist of fruits and veggies. … Continue reading Malti’s Munchies

Pearl Cutts in “Cheezer Reconnaissance”

Sometimes die-hard fans ask why so many of their favorite feathery actor's one-avian plays seem to revolve around edibles. The answer is surprisingly simple: even super-spies like .007 get hungry. Since it can be challenging to pause mid-mission for a snack break, one of the best ways to handle a grumbling stomach is to work … Continue reading Pearl Cutts in “Cheezer Reconnaissance”

Wet Bird Couture Presents: The Cockatiel

The cockatiel is a very popular and cute member of the parrot species. But unlike other parrots, it has a genus, Nymphicus, and family, Nymphicinae, all to itself (the fact that neither is easy to pronounce does not detract from the significance of this one bit). Cockatiels begin their lives inside eggs. Precocious even before birth, they perform their … Continue reading Wet Bird Couture Presents: The Cockatiel

Many celebrities become as famous for their preferences as for their talents. For example, J.Lo. likes her surroundings to be white - ALL white. Kanye West prefers his carpets ironed. And Beyonce is so fond of roses she specifies the scent for the candles in her dressing room AND her daughter's on-tour, on-site nursery. In … Continue reading Day 195: Stowaway Gifts
