"As an expierence Nape owner (over 20 years), please think carefully before purchasing this parrot. Things to consider: 1) These are not good family pets. For those with a baby Nape or toddler Napes (2-3 years old or less), you may disagree, but wait till the sexually maturity of the bird begins. I probably did not get a bite that drew blood till he was about 4 years old (and have received, I am sure hundreds since, my hands are scarred) The Napes behavior will change and can be very aggressive even to the primary caretaker, depending on the birds hormonal changes. They would fit best into households with preferably no children or older children. A young child could be seriously hurt or scarred from an adult Nape. 2) Yellow Napes are endangered in their natural habitats. If you purchase a Nape, it should be from a reputable domestic breeder. There are many parrots that have been given up by their owners (consignment birds). Consider adopting one. 3) As much as I love my parrot, if I had to make the choice to do get him again, I would not. These birds are not really domesticated (only a few generations removed from the wild) and I am sure they would be happier in the wild. I am the only one in my family that my Nape tolerates. My wife and children are very freightened by him. Especially my 6 year old daughter who is terrified that my Nape will get her. It is not an ideal living situation for the Nape or my family. But I am trying to give him the best life I can, he has only bonded to me. 4) Please do not look at this bird for it's beauty and want to collect it. Chances are you will be sorry. "
