Here Dylan, the human, and Butters, the hyacinth macaw (Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus) demonstrate the level of trust and the bond that can be had with a bird. This may be an easy task for a baby bird, but Butters is a captive hatched adult that had very little interaction with humans before.
At Fauna you will find an assortment of beautiful birds that are all raised in captivity at our very own aviary. By only selling birds that we have raised ourselves can we guarantee the quality and health of each and every bird in our store.
We carry a wide variety of herptiles at Fauna. Unlike most other stores, here you will find only captive raised reptiles and amphibians available for sale. This not only reduces the strain on wild populations, but assures you a healthy pet that has not been collected from the wild.
Most all of our fish and corals are captive raised on farms reducing the impact on wild populations and damage to delicate ecosystems. Not only is this better for the environment, but it also ensures that you have healthier fish that are better suited for life in the aquarium.
Central America in general is a hot zone for conservation. The scarlet macaws of the Mayan Biosphere are one of those species that is critically endangered, with just 300 members living in the wild.
We are happy to introduce our very first Scaly Breasted Lorikeet (Trichoglossus chlorolepidotus) chick hatched at our aviary. These birds are a native to Eastern Australia and make wonderful pets. All the same spunky, fun-loving personalities of the larger lory species compressed to the perfect size for smaller homes. These brilliantly colored, emerald green birds with yellow streaks across the chest and lower abdomen grow to be just slightly larger than a budgie! They have coral red beaks and red shoulders to add just the right amount of flare to their already outstanding physical features. While we only have this one chick at the moment, we are currently expecting more to hatch in just a few days!
