Shagged by a rare parrot | Last Chance To See – BBC


It ought to be impossible to describe a creature as looking old fashioned, but that’s exactly how Sirocco looks. With his big side burns and his victorian
gentleman’s face. It’s actually nice to see him wandering around
in the forest undergrowth. You can see he’s got very good camouflage. He has, that colour is incredible. So evolution hasn’t entirely rendered him
useless. Hello. Are you gonna look in the lens? A typical male, Sirocco is clearly only interested
in one thing. Oh, hello! Oh, look a that! Ow! God he’s got sharp claws. He’s getting a bit frisky. Ow! Do you think it is a- he’s actually attempting
a sort of mating ritual? He is? You are being shagged! Ow, wow it’s sharp. Look, he’s so happy! I’m sorry but it’s one of the funniest things
I’ve ever seen. You are being shagged by a rare parrot. He thinks you are a female. Ow! He’s really going for it. Wow, you’ve chosen him. Actually, you are in pain aren’t you. It’s alright. Oh, his neck-. He’s fine but it’s really sharp claws. Did that hurt? Yeah, it did hurt. Yeah, you’ve got blood there and blood there
and blood there. We should patch you up to be honest ’cause
it’s not good. Well! I want you to call the chick- when you have
the chick, I want you to call it Stephen for me. Would you do that? I’m not sure how to take that. A little egg will come out of your mouth. Ladies and gentlemen you’ve seen a television
first. You’ve seen Mark Carwardine who has devoted
his life to conserving animals, actually taking an active part in the conservation and breeding
of a whole new generation of a whole new species. Homo-Kakapens. He’s going to give birth to a little kakapo. We’re very proud of you. Do you want to have a go? I think I’ll pass actually.
