Habitat & threats

Tropical rainforest floor. Natural predators are snakes and small carnivores.  Deforestation and illegal trapping for the pet trade both pose more serious threats.

 

Diet

They eat a variety of foods including fruits, seeds and insects which they find by scratching through the forest floor with their feet.

 

Breeding and social dynamics

They spend most of their time in a large flock, searching for food and communicating with a range of different ‘coos’. They normally lay two eggs and the parents feed the young from their crop.
