Meet Peanut — a cockatoo facing a bit of an identity crisis.
When Peanut joined Frances Kent’s family 19 years ago, he was just an impressionable chick eager to fit in. His dog siblings quickly taught him the ropes and it didn’t take long for Peanut to begin to mimic the language and behavior of his new flock.
“He started copying the dogs from early on,” Kent told The Dodo, courtesy of ViralHog. “When the dogs would run to bark at the gate, he would follow and do the same.”
“He is very affectionate, super intelligent and can be just as mischievous,” she added.
