Parrots are one of the most intelligent birds and surprisingly impressive with their ability to talk. Interestingly, a parrot's life span can be really long, giving you more time to bond with each other. An average lifespan of a parrot can range from 5 to 85 years or even more, depending upon the breed.

For those who want a parrot with a longer lifespan, it becomes a matter of choice of breed. Although, in captivity, a parrot's lifespan can be a bit longer than those in the wild, but a parrot kept as a pet will still need adequate care and attention o that it does have a long lifespan.

Parrots living in captivity and add a huge amount of years to their life because they are not threatened by predators and are not exposed to many illnesses that are out there in the wild. Environmental elements play a vital role in decreasing or increasing the lifespan of a parrot or its species and pet parrots face much less survival crisis which gives them more mental piece and a stronger body to live a longer lifetime.

A parrot's lifespan can be increased if you give them the proper nutrition that they need along with a good vet checkup on a regular basis. Avoiding a lot of diseases can increase immunity in your pet, giving them more chance to live longer.

Pet parrots are just like human beings and need a lot of mental peace and moral support to live longer, which can only be provided by their owners. They are a social animal and it is important to their wellbeing that owners spend a lot of time with them and have a lot of interaction with them. Being intelligent as they are, they also need mental stimulation and this can come from the owners but the right choice of parrot toys can also be a great help.
