Camelot Macaw = Scarlet X Catalina
The Camelot Macaw has a lot of Scarlet Macaw in it from its parentage. The Scarlet Macaw, the best known South American parrot for over 100 years, is one of the most popular macaws frequently described as "beautiful and striking". The Camelot inherits all that beautiful coloring and more!
Because hybrid macaws are a mixture of more than one type of macaw, the offspring are influenced by the traits and characteristics of both of its parents. Father's have the dominant gene, so this will generally influence the offspring's coloration and overall appearance. However the behavior and temperament are more unpredictable.
The personality of a Scarlet is such that it requires good socialization and a firm consistent hand in training, especially as it matures. The Camelot can have these characteristics, but it can also have the gentle nature and the speaking ability of the Blue and Gold Macaw mixed in. It can be a very affectionate, inquisitive, and fun pet that is beautiful.
