Scaly Breasted Lorikeet

(Trichoglossus chlorolepidotus)

Dino was 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.

Wrestling scaly-breasted lorikeets

Lories are known to be clowns and always playing around. Here are¬†three young ones that love flipping on their backs and wrestling, often all three at once. They can’t resist playing even when in a temporary small carrier while their primary cage is being cleaned!

Adorable Scaly Breasted Lorikeet Baby!

Fauna recently found a wonderful home for Dino, the scaly breasted lorikeet! He’s your typical lorikeet lovebug, full of energy and spunk. Here you can watch him wrestle with his new owner and make a new Schnauzer friend, Marti.

Our scaly breasted lorikeets don’t care care that it’s not yet spring! Even in the bitter cold they gave us two beautiful babies.
