OK, someone just said they payed $150.00 for there kk parrot. I take a look at the pics and It looked very simalar to my 10 inch BP. I am starting to think it could be a KK. The funny thing is, the lfs ordered a small one for a display, got that one by mistake, wanted it gone, so they sold me a 10" blood parrot for only $20. I thought It was a great deal then, but If its also a kk then that would be great. I would like to see a few pics of KKs to descide if mine could be one.

That "someone" would probably be me. A Blood Parrot is not the same as a King Kong Parrot. Nor would the price be the same. ;)

Yes i knew it was me . :) related in the sense that they may share some "parents" but KK parrots have a strong midas quality than KK parrots. Mine is about 10-12 inches. But they are not the same.


some examples of KK Parrots

I will try to get some pics up. but make a judement based on descreption for now: 9-10", Whatever-it's-called hump (not as large as in some of those pics but still noticeable), dorsal and anal fins reaching tail end, pure orange (kind of a iredescent orange to stomach) I have not seen BP that large and is there any BP with head-humps? the bad thing is he is always moving so I am having deficulty taking pics.
