Parrots develop their ability to mimic only in captivity to which they adapt with ease. No other bird uses its feet almost like hands, holding food in one foot and biting pieces off much as one would eat a sandwich. Reacting to flattery and capable of showing affection, parrots are extremely long lived. Individuals are known to have lived upwards of 50 years in captivity and one is recorded as having reached 80.
