Animals Video

This talented parrot has been filmed performing tricks on camera, in exchange for treats from its owner.

Shadow, a Caique parrot, rolls over and hops in the video, and his adoring owner gives him treats in the form of nuts for all of his hard work.

Alexandrea Sharpe, from Toronto, Ontario filmed the footage after spending hours each day to train her pet.

Alexandra said: “It takes a lot of time and repetition –and nuts- to train Shadow, but I definitely think it was worth it!

“Shadow can roll over, hop on command, give kisses, fetch – although he hasn’t learnt to bring the ball back yet…

“He also now puts himself to bed when we say bedtime, which is not quite a bit but definitely good behaviour!

“I thought it was the cutest moment ever when he rolls over, it’s just adorable!”
