Lorikeets

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 24-05-2014 01-09-2014 15 Lorikeets Back by popular demand, the lorikeets return to the Aquarium for the summer. Laugh and a squawk with beautiful tropical birds that will sip food right out of your hands. The exhibit will feature about a dozen varieties of lorikeets, which are colorful medium-sized parrots native to the south Pacific (SE Asia, eastern Australia, Polynesia). They're naturally found in rain forests and woodlands, but also in wooded urban areas, where they primarily feed on the nectars of various blossoms and fruits. Lorikeets are specially adapted to their sweet diet through their specialized tongue. When the tongue is extended, tiny appendages called papillae stand up like bristles, expanding the tongue's surface area and allowing the birds to collect more nectar.
