Haha. That's not too bad. We had an Amazon when I was younger, in 2 seconds he had removed two buttons and taken a chunk out of the third (this was the fourth remote control he destroyed....we kept having to make up stories to the cable company )

You can't tell it from that pic, but the tops are missing from several of the buttons. I bought another remote

That is so adorable! Not too adorable about the destruction of property though. He's innocent though, look at that face.
I want a Caique so bad because they roll around on their backs, hahaha. (yes I know this isn't a Caique :P )

Caiques are great. Get 2, they are even funnier to watch in pairs.

Omg yes! I've seen them in pet stores and in YouTube videos and I could just sit and watch them bounce around and wrestle and play forever, lol.

The only caique I've ever handled gave me the worst parrot bite I've ever had. He chomped hard and held on, and I COULD NOT GET HIM OFF. I sort of had to fling him off. It was bad.

My partner used to have hair to her waist. She once had a pair of white bellied surf her hair and it was the funniest thing. They made a big nest of her hair and I had to untangle them.

Adorable haha yes caiques are notoriously aggressive little birds but what is deemed as aggression is usually just a bird playing too rough

Yeah, you just have to be able to read them well and when they start getting worked up too much just back off so they can calm down.
From my research Caiques end up biting too hard when they are just getting way too in to wrestling and playing with you.

He is looking so innocent as if he hadn't the idea to chew the buttons of the remote.

Oh, and our record button on our remote is chewed off so we can't press it. I can't remember who did it though.

For whatever reason Sammie goes for the power button first. She's already taken a chunk out of the power button on my new remote.
