Creature Name: Parrot
Observations by: Kassaerth Ssalaresh
Creature Type: Animal ((7))
Creature Subtype: Bird
CTS trainable: Yes (compatible with CTS).
The parrot is a brightly plumaged and often multi-colored bird, similar in size to ravens and crows.
Parrots typically eat plants, in the form of fruit, nuts, seeds, and flower buds, often using their strong, curved beaks to crack open a seed or nut. Some parrots will prey on small carrion as well.
Disposition and Social Habits
Kassaerth has not noticed multiple parrots traveling together, although they must congregate together at some point to mate. The parrot is not an aggressive creature, and will tolerate humans, shaahesk, and other intelligent species in its presence.
Parrots generally prefer to live in heavily wooded areas, as they make their homes in hollowed out areas of trees.
Most compatible: Hawk
- The parrot is a bird, reasonably similar in size to the common hawk.
Least compatible: Dire Wolf
- The parrot can fly, is small and non-aggressive, eats plants, is brightly colored, and is often found alone. The dire wolf is the opposite of all these things. Although bears, boars, and panthers are also much larger, more aggressive, and flightless, each has at least one of the parrot's traits in common. The bear and boar will eat plants, while the panther is less likely to be found in packs and is certainly striking in appearance, if not exactly brightly colored.
