Hello everybody! This macaw was part of a work of biology at the college of my daughter, who was attempting to educate people not to buy wild animals. This beautiful animal, natural tropical forests of South America, is highly coveted by smugglers.
In captivity, unlikely to receive necessary care.
I did this and the other animals as if they were being bred in captivity, reproducing their sorrow and ill-treatment with some simple changes in papercraft and pasting a bit crooked and crumpling the paper. However, if you make one, can portray the beauty of this animal simply by pasting the paper as the assembly instructions.
