Origin and History
Scarlet macaws are native to the tropical rainforest areas of Central and South America.
Scarlet macaws are brilliant birds with an abundance of energy and personality, but they need daily socialization and stimulation to tame them and keep them that way. They can get bored quite easily, so they should be provided with plenty of toys to play with. Handled scarlet macaws can be very affectionate, but potential owners should keep in mind that they, like all macaws, can be rather noisy at times.
The best diet for a macaw begins with a right parrot mix that includes formulated foods, a variety of seeds, dried fruits, and nuts.
A scarlet macaw should be allowed outside of the cage for at least two hours a day (four or five is better) and should also be given plenty of chew toys to help it exercise the powerful beak and jaws. Rugged ties that can take a beating help the jaw muscles while providing an outlet for the chewing instinct.
