The grey parrot is the parrot species that is most often kept as a pet. They are social and clever animals. If you can give the animal the attention it deserves, it is a pleasant companion animal. Grey parrots can be a friend for life and can even survive their owner, as they can live up to 70 years old. Gris du Gabon
