I do not know where I heard this information many years ago but it has been said that Parrots are ancestors to the Dinosaurs. This seemed odd at first but the more you think about it many Parrots have the same features of these huge prehistoric creatures.
I always thought my Cockatoo Marshmellow looks like a dinosaur when she takes a drink of water. She always reminds me of “Dino the Dinosaur” from the Flintstones. (LOL)
Now at the University of Chicago, Palentologists have found the remains of a dinosaur that had a parrot beak and ate nuts and seeds.
