Parrot Chooses Zoologist As Partner For Life

June 6, 2014: This parrot shows that when a species is critically endangered, it will do anything to survive.

This video will definitely be the highlight of your day.

Zoologist Mark Carwardine was busy filming a rare flightless bird called kakapo in New Zealand for a 2009 wildlife documentary, Last Chance To See, alongside actor Stephen Fry.

Things got a little awkward when the endangered parrot clambered onto the conservationist’s shoulders and started rubbing its body against his head as though attempting a mating ritual.

Fry, who was standing beside Carwardine, decided to make the most of the rare encounter by narrating it in his serious yet scrumptious baritone voice.

I'm sorry but this is one of the funniest things I've ever seen," Fry exclaimed. "You are being shagged by a rare parrot."

When the parrot refused to come off the Carwardine’s shoulders, his colleague added, “He’s really going for it!”

Although the incident was hilarious, the wildlife expert got a little injured by the huge claws of the big bird that spent around two-minutes stuck on the back of his neck.

Ladies and gentlemen you've 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,” Fry commented while the zoologist laughed along.

 Meet the world’s friskiest endangered kakapo in the video above.
