Marula is our 11-year-old turaco. He was adopted from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah. He was looking for a home and Best Friends knew a turaco was one of my dream birds. He captivates visitors with his striking colors, especially seen in flight. Turacos are known to be nervous birds and we immediately began training him to take food from our hands, fly to our hands, and fly to particular perches. He can often be seen flying around the enrichment room of our Center.
