Description: The blue-and-yellow macaw or blue-and-gold macaw (Ara ararauna) is a large bird from South America. It is found in countries such as Brazil, Colombia and Venezuela. This macaw's feathers have four vivid colours (blue, yellow, green and black). It can reach a length of 85 to 90 centimetres and weigh 0.9 to 1.2 kilograms. It reaches sexual maturity at the age of three or four, and it is said to mate for life. Like the other macaws, the blue-and-yellow macaw can mimic human speech. Its diet includes seeds, fruits, nuts, etc. Some people keep blue-and-yellow macaws as pets. However, they may outlive their owners since they can live more than sixty years.
