Parrot 'dresses up' by ripping up calendar to make fake tail feathers

This is the hilarious moment a parrot tore a desk calendar into strips to make paper tails for itself.

The funny video, shot in Jinan City in eastern China's Shandong Province on February 18, shows the parrot using its mouth to tear the paper on a desk calendar into strips, and then inserting them among the feathers on its real tail.

According to the owner Ms Fang, the parrot has lived with her for more than a year and it has almost torn apart all the calendars at home.
