The Australian King Parrot, also known as the King Lory, is endemic to eastern Australia. They are found in humid and heavily forested upland regions of the eastern portion of the continent, including eucalyptus wooded areas in and directly adjacent to subtropical and temperate rainforest.
The Australian King Parrot orginates from Australia. Australian King Parrots range from North and Central Queensland to Southern Victoria. They are frequently seen in small groups with various species of rosella. They are kept as pets in Australia but are rarely seen as a pet outside of the continent.
Australian King Parrots feed on on fruits, seeds, and small insects in the wild. As pets, they can be fed a mixture of cockatiel seed, small parrot vitamin fortified pellets, fruits, small nuts, fresh greens, and vegetables.
Sexing Australian King Parrots can be determined at maturity by the bright red belly, head, and tail of the male. The female has a green breast and head. There is little information on the research of breeding in captivity.
Like other pet parrots, the bird cage should be large enough for them to spread their entire wing span.
These beautiful parrots are not well known outside of Australia. They can make sweet pet birds and are commonly kept by those living in the Australian area. All pet parrots should have colorful toys, human companionship, a comfortable cage, and good nutrition.
