3-month-old macaw plays with human in the most adorable way

Who says puppies and kittens should get all the love? Rio, a three-month-old baby macaw, shows us that all animal babies are playful and curious cuties.
In this adorable YouTube video, you get an up-close look at this stunning young bird - draped in feathers ranging from bright yellow to green, blue, and turquoise. This little guy might just be getting used to the world now, but macaws can live to be up to 50 years old!

Little Rio is lying on his back when a playful stranger comes along making baby-talk noises to him, tickling his tummy, and trying to get him to play with a toy.
Rio goes along with it for a while - playfully biting at his new friend and grabbing things with his talons. But after a while, this little guy gets bashful and hides underneath his wing! When he does, he curls into an adorable little ball, and his new friend tries to get him to come out.
Eventually, Rio pops his head back up and continues playing along. The little bird is just too adorable to miss. So be sure to check out baby Rio's adorable antics right here below.
