Acquired: Worked with pet (didn’t own)
Posted Aug 22, 2012
Mealys are one of the largest members in the Amazon family, but you shouldn't be intimidated by their size - as Amazon temperaments go, these are one of the nicest and most mellow; definitely in my top 3 for best pet quality Amazon. They are highly trainable but can cope with a certain level of chaos in the home and can learn to be very independent if provided with plenty of intellectually stimulating toys and foragers. They are capable of learning human speech and do not display the same level of hormonal aggression as the "Hot 3" Amazons do.
