The Red Lory can live up to 28+ years, they are very affectionate, playful and curious birds. Their call is a loud piercing whistle from metallic ‘pings’ to soft high-pitched warbles and chattering.
As Lorys are so playful and curious they need a lot of enrichment to keep them entertained. To do this we provide them with small logs with holes in which we hang from the aviary and fill with fruit and seeds. This allows them to spend time searching to mimic their behaviour in the wild.
Distribution: Mouccas and surrounding islands in Indonesia.
Diet: Nectar, fruit and seed.
Habitat: Tropical moist lowland forests and tropical mangrove forests
