Pyrrhura e. egregia (Fiery-shoulded Conure)
Pyrrhura e. obscura (Gran Sabana Conure)
The Fiery-shouldered Conure rapidly becomes confiding. This conure is an intelligent, playful, mischievous and very sweet natured creature, with a gentle disposition.
Handfed Fiery-shouldered Conures crave human contact and are very cuddly. They love to snuggle up with their owners for as long as he or she allows it.
They are less noisy (only heard when excited) and destructive than many of the conure species.
Care and Feeding:
Conures love to climb and play and need to be provided with a cage that allows them to move around freely and toys to entertain themselves with. They like bathing, which is also essential for their health and wellbeing. Please refer to the following websites for information:
