You might not think so, but some birds can actually make better pets than cats and dogs. They are smart, clean, and tremendously affectionate. If you need proof, just take a look at Ripley!
This one-year-old toucan, while most definitely a bird, actually behaves more like a dog – and it’s one of the most adorable things we’ve ever seen.
Meet Ripley. She’s a toucan, but she thinks she’s a dog!
When it’s time to cuddle up and watch a movie, Ripley’s there.
Just like a member of the family, she goes on trips and adventures to meet some of her favorite people… and aliens.
Like your average pup, Ripley can get a little frisky!
She likes to bring her family special presents, too.
She can be a little clingy, but with those cute eyes how can you resist her?
After a little rest, she’s ready for anything, even a game of catch!
And when it’s time for bed, she’s happy to curl up anywhere so long as you’re close by.
Look how she cuddles just like a lap dog!
Have you ever seen anything cuter in your entire life? I might have to go see if I can trade in my old labrador for a pet toucan (just kidding, Brenner!).
