The scarlet macaw is regarded by many as the most beautiful member of the parrot family, and it is certainly the most colorful, with its large solid swatches of red, blue, and yellow. It sheer flashiness and dominant personality make it among the most popular of large parrot species as a pet.
Scarlet macaws are extremely intelligent birds, with an abundance of energy and personality, but they need daily socialization and stimulation to tame them and keep them that way. They can get bored quite easily, so they should be provided with plenty of toys to play with. Handled scarlet macaws can be very affectionate, but potential owners should keep in mind that they, like all macaws, can be rather noisy at times.
Scarlet macaws are idiosyncratic birds that can become fixated on one person if they are not trained when young to socialize with every family member. The impressively large beak is very powerful; this bird may not be a great fit for families with children.
Scarlet macaws grow to an average adult size of 35 inches, from the tip of the beak to the end of the tail feathers. They typically weight between 2 and 3 pounds.
A captive scarlet macaw can live for 80 years or more, though 40 to 50 years is more typical.
