Rocky is our 25-year-old Moluccan cockatoo and the mascot of The Animal Behavior Center. He’s our mascot because his story is the reason Lara went back to college studying master level classes in Applied Behavior Analysis to learn how to do better by him. Lara adopted Rocky when he was 8-years old and was going to be euthanized for his aggressive behaviors. Through determination and education, Rocky is now the sweetest bird at the Center and loves to be held by everyone. He loves singing, dancing, and talking to people and also thrives on attention. We’ve nicknamed him Rocky Valentine because all who meet him fall in love with him.
