Unusual animal friendships are the probably the best thing the internet can provide us with. This cockatiel and tortoise duo is definitely one of the similar blessings!


The video below displays a tortoise and a cockatiel facing the mirror for the first time. The tortoise is calm since he is too busy munching the lettuce. But the cockatiel just can’t keep calm!

He first notices his friend’s reflection and begins to make the funniest noises. He squeals in excitement and looks at his owner as though to ask, “What on Earth is happening!?”


We all know that animals cannot recognize themselves in the mirror. This explains the poor parrot’s hilarious reactions. He is just so excited to see someone else just like him!

He moves from one side to another as though to check what is happening.

Watch the excited little bird in the hilarious video below:
