The Pirate Parrot!
A parrot on a boat?!? Who would've thought!! 'Lucky', an African Grey Parrot, is the best shipboard companion you could imagine. Seen here, steering the ship, her abilities are quite versatile. At only 7 years old, her vocabulary is already about 200 words, and she loves to make people laugh. She even has manners... always says "yes please", and "excuuusse me" after burping (it's all that fantastic shipboard cooking). True to her pirate background, she may even tell you to "Walk the plank, you bum!!"
of 'Sophisticated Lady' is ready to welcome you Aboard!!
