Ara macao

All Parrots have strong beaks, but Scarlet Macaws can open their beaks extra wide to deliver a more powerful bite. This extra-strength crunching action lets them break open the hardest nuts and eat unripe fruit.

Scarlet Macaws typically use their left foot for handling food and grasping other things while the right foot holds onto a branch.

  • Love this zoo! Great place to get a walk in and the animals are everywhere! The museum/indoor part is very educational too. Has a lot of shade for when it's hot out. Very clean. Friendly staff.

  • The museum gives you a break from the sun on hot summer days and has a great selection of animal exhibits from around the world. ¬†The zoo keeps growing and adding new animal habitats or improving existing ones. ¬†Membership offers reciprocal benefits to other zoos around the country.
