My mom works at a zoo and they get calls from people wanting to get rid of their animals all the time. She checked him out and they would have gotten him as an education animal, except they already had a grey. Gobo was my Christmas of 2007 present! It turns out that he stayed at my Nana's house for a week before Christmas, and my mom visited him every day!. Awards

Hi! My name is Gobo

I am a Congo African Grey from West Lafayette, IN.

Burito Baby, Go-Go

20 years old   M

Congo African Grey

Cherios, almonds, grapes

Gobo absolutely dislikes men. He has tried to FLY aftermy dad, even though his wings are clipped! He just flutters around just above the ground, though it's more like hopping.

I love Ali because she spoils me and keeps me away from the curious kitties. And if I learn a new trick, she gets very excited over me!

When he wants attention, he will play his little piano. It's just a plastic, four-key baby toy piano, nothing special or expensive, but I taught him how to play the notes.

Also, he will do summersaults on the side of his cage.

No Grey, no glory..

  Hey Gobo
I think I better talk mom into getting me a piano. It sounds like a lot of fun.
So you chewed up the sock sweater eh? More power to you!! HAHAHA I'd do that too...of course mom would have a battle getting me to co-operate with her putting it on me in the first place. She's still working on a flight harness with me. She's for it and I'm not. I figure as long as my wings are trimmed why should I have to wear one? What do you think?

Come visit me, Shaggy--2010-2013, Ipo, Sidney ~~ALWAYS IN MY HEART~~6/1996-2/2013, Oatie Odette *Thank you for the honor 11/19/15, Sophie O'Too, Pimer--Thanks you all, Jules, Punkin *Thank You for the Honor* & Makana *I am honored as BOTD 10-17-14* Thank You.

Sorry, that's what Yargo, my African Grey said when he saw your picture (he gets very friendly very easy!) Yargo will have his own profile soon, so he is writing by way of his brother Mardi for now. Yargo doesn't like men either (probably because my mom and I are the ones who feed him!) Anyway, Gobo is such a cute name and is very lovely- identical to Yargo! They would make great friends!

Come visit me, Pheobe, Yargo & Mardi.
