Red-bellied Parrots are friendly and intelligent, but they can also be shy, especially around strangers. They require a diet rich in fresh fruits, vegetables, and seeds, as well as plenty of mental stimulation. Despite their small size, they need a good amount of space to play and exercise, as well as regular interaction with their human caretakers.
