Pet Lorikeets


Lories and lorikeets are small to medium-sized parrots. They are widely distributed throughout the Australasian region, including south-eastern Asia, Polynesia, Papua New Guinea and Australia, and the majority have very brightly colored plumage.

Tongue of a Lorikeets have specialized brush tipped tongues for feeding on nectar and soft fruits. They can feed from the flowers of about 5,000 species of plants and use their specialised tongues to take the nectar. The tip of their tongues have tufts of extremely fine hairs, which collect nectar and pollen.

Lorikeets have tapered wings and pointed tails that allow them to fly easily and display great agility.They also have strong feet and legs. They tend to be hyperactive and clownish in personality both in captivity and the wild.
