Parrots are well known for their brightly coloured plumage and for their ability to imitate human voices. Many breeds are excellent at mimicking most noises they hear, and African grey parrots are amongst the best talkers!
There are around 372 different species of parrots, mostly living in tropical areas.
Parrots are often seen as a pirate's companion in stories and films. Although there are no records of real pirates having pet parrots, there was a trade in exotic animals during the age of piracy. A beautiful, talking bird would have been worth a lot of money, so parrots probably were stolen by pirates along with other valuable items.
Fun Fact: Some parrot species can live for over 80 years, and the oldest parrot lived to the ripe old age of 87!
