The African Grey Parrot (Psittacus erithacus), also known as the Grey Parrot,is a medium-sized parrot
found in the primary and secondary rainforest of West and Central Africa.
Experts regard it as one of the most intelligent birds in the world.
They feed primarily on palm nuts, seeds, fruits, and leafy matter, but have also been observed eating snails.
Their overall gentle nature and their inclination and ability to mimic speech have made them popular pets,
which has led many to be captured from the wild and sold into the pet trade.
