(Cavatua Lophocroa leadbeateri) 

In the right circumstances, the huge and stunning Triton Cockatoo can make a good pet. The bird's tendency to scream and overly develop an attachment to its handler moderate its intelligence and loving nature. A human carer who fully comprehends these possible problems will find that a Triton may make a wonderful friend, despite the fact that it can be a needy bird.


With its white feathers and evocative yellow crest, the Triton exudes elegance. They have short, rounded tails and relatively small feet and beaks compared to their size. The loud voice and fondness for screaming is one of the traits of the Triton Cockatoo. Owners may experience issues because of this, and it is not suggested that birds live in apartments. Although they are able to learn words, they are not the most vocal parrots.

Character & Behavior

Tritons are acrobatic, highly energetic birds who want to be the focus of attention. Their affectionate nature is one of its enticing qualities to pet owners, despite the fact that their size and noise levels can be problematic in a residential environment. They can develop very close ties with their chosen human companion and expect a lot of care from them. Sadly, after the bird achieves sexual maturity at around 3 to 4 years of age, these ties may make the bird aggressive toward other individuals.

Violence between cockatoos in captivity is a widespread problem. A sizable aviary must be available if you intend to keep more than one of these birds.
