Niam Niam Parrot Species Profile
Traits:  Not much is known about the Niam Niam parrot; a captive breeding of the species was recorded in 1981 in Mozambique. Information on how this species would be as a pet is not available at this time. Its availability and sustainability as a pet has been compared to that of the yellow-faced parrot.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  According to a report that describes four Niam Niam parrots that were obtained in 1967, the birds were very nervous and banana leaves were placed around the sides of the aviary for privacy. Because more research on this species needs to be conducted and reported, further information on the Niam Niam parrot's behavior and health is not available at this time.
