Chongo is shy but he has come out of his shell since he came to Animal Wonders and received the care he deserves.
He was raised in inadequate conditions for the first year of his life and learned to fear people, toys, and new situations. He was rescued by a loving family in hopes that they could give him a proper home. Although, they did everything in their power to help Chongo, he was just too nervous to really come around and needed more knowledgeable care. They were happy to donate him to Animal Wonders hoping that he would learn to enjoy his life and the world around him.
It seems that Chongo was just waiting for a place that gave him stability and understanding so he could show off the wonderful personality he has. He now sings (quite loudly) and enjoys showers and the company of his favorite human friend (Jessi) and favorite bird friend (Zoe). He is an ambassador for all the parrots out there who weren't given a loving stable start in life. He will continue to receive the best care possible whether he joins our programs to meet a public audiences or not.
