Nandays are very beautiful and intelligent. A hand fed bird makes an excellant pet, if you can take the noise. Nandays are very loud, but if they are played with every day they do not squawk so much. Nandays are inquisitive and easily trained, they have even been used at Seaworld. Many try to talk and learn many words. They do not speak clearly though and so this fact is not widely known. It's sort of like baby talk, the mother knows what the child is saying, but no one else does.
