Leo (of The Perch with Leo and Bentley fame) continues to amaze us. Because he’s our official spokesbird, we wanted him to be totally socialized, so he’s been to an elementary school, a fireworks display and several other outings.
He is friendly, but he is an exotic, which cannot be taken out of him and you never know what could happen. You can’t always predict his behavior. If for some reason he doesn’t like someone, he simply won’t go to them. He’s now been handled by about 200 people and we shall introduce him to many more.
We are quite good at reading body language and if someone goes to reach for Leo and we can feel him in a certain way, we would strongly advise against it. He is an exotic, after all.
