There is certainly nothing cuter than unusual animal friendships like this one between a cockatiel and a tortoise who see themselves in the mirror for the first time. And while the hungry tortoise keeps munching and is concentrated on the lettuce, the parrot simply can’t hide his excitement.
The moment he notices his pal’s reflection on the mirror, he starts making hilarious noise that is both adorable and contagious. As he squeals in total delight, he takes the time to look at the owner with a puzzled expression on his face as if he is asking for a confirmation that he is looking at another pair of friends opposite them.
It’s a fun fact that most animals don’t recognize themselves when looking in the mirror, and that’s why this adorable bird believes there is another one of his kind on the other side.
But, no matter what the cockatiel believed was going on, it’s not that important as long as he’s having so much fun. His reaction is so interesting that we can watch the video over and over again without getting bored. It’s simply hilarious.
Take a look at it and see it for yourself.
