      ? is it a stuffed specimen?
      Bronx zoo is a world-class zoological park,....!

      I am confident that the intention is to educate visitors on the problems of parrot ownership and to emphasize the inadequacy of the cage.
      So, is the bird alive?
    • ThylacineAlive
      No, it's a cardboard cutout. The point is to show how expensive it is to keep an exotic bird happy and healthy.
      The pricetag reads:
      The cost of owning a parrot for 40 years-
      Green-Winged Macaw:
      $2,000
      Food:
      $730 per year
      $29,200 per 40 years
      Perching:
      $120 per year
      $4,800 per 40 years
      Hours of attention:
      2 hours per day
      29,200 per 40 years
      Health Care:
      $??

      The reason I sentenced it the way I did is because I wanted to see if anyone believed this was an actualy living bird:p

      I actually don't think the zoo displays Green-Winged Macaws anyway.

      Is this animal stuffed? I hope it’s an educational exhibit. I’m glad it’s not a real bird. It looks real in the photo.
