What is the lifespan of a Cockatoo?


Staff member
Greetings from TiktokParrot!

Cockatoos are beautiful and intelligent birds that can bring joy and companionship to their owners for many years. If you're considering adding a cockatoo to your family, it's essential to understand their lifespan and the commitment involved in caring for these wonderful creatures.

Cockatoos have a relatively long lifespan compared to some other pets, with many species living for several decades or more. On average, cockatoos can live between 20 to 60 years, depending on factors such as species, genetics, diet, environment, and quality of care provided by their owners. Some species, such as the Sulphur-crested Cockatoo and the Umbrella Cockatoo, have been known to live for over 80 years with proper care.

Overall we can say, cockatoos are fascinating and long-lived companions that require a significant commitment from their owners. By providing a loving and enriching environment, a balanced diet, regular veterinary care, and plenty of mental and physical stimulation, you can help ensure that your cockatoo enjoys a happy and healthy life for many years to come.

Remember, adopting a cockatoo is a lifelong commitment, so be prepared to provide love and care for your feathered friend throughout their long lifespan.
