More Kooky Stuff

Hey BetteJo, he is 15-16 inches long (40cm).
What a weapon the beak is!

Oh wow - I might be afraid of him then. He doesn't look altogether friendly. Handsome maybe, but . ..

I absolutely love these birds...
to me they look friendly and so fluffy that I often think about cuddling them :)

Great shots!

Beautiful photos- it looks like he let you get quite close to him! I have worked with them at a number of zoos and can verify that cuddling with them isn't usually a very viable option, sadly. Great birds though!
