Sometimes kids can be a handful, especially when they don’t listen. It’s not uncommon for children to throw temper tantrums when they don’t get their way. But this temper tantrum is nothing like any you’ve ever seen before. And that’s because it isn’t a child, but rather a Cockatoo!
This Cockatoo, named Pebble, was told to go back to her cage, but she has other things in mind. She refuses to listen and shows her anger with a hilarious temper tantrum.
She rambles on and on for a few minutes to her human dad who keeps telling her to come to him. Some of what she says is hard to understand, but she does throw in a few curse words.
2:43 into the video, Pebble’s dad asks her if she has an attitude, and she responds with “Ya, that’s right!” It’s clear that this sassy bird is not afraid to let her feelings be known and she definitely won’t take any orders from anyone.
Sadly, Pebble has gone from home to home in the past 20 years, but she’s finally with a loving family who takes great care of her. She may get moody sometimes, but she’s a great bird!
Cockatoos are a type of Parrot, which are famous for imitation of speech. Some Parrots, like the African Grey Parrot, are able to mimic human speech or sounds perfectly, but Cockatoos are not as good at it. While they can imitate sounds and words, their accuracy is limited, which explains why it’s sometimes hard to understand what Pebble is saying.
