LORIKEETS

Lorikeets (lories) have tapered wings and pointed tails, allowing them to fly easily and display great agility. I have tapered ears and a floofy tail, I cannot fly, but watch me leap tall furniture in a single bound. And agile, oh yes I am, I've never toppled a lamp or busted any knickknacks. Lorikeets are known to be hyperactive and clownish -- well, need I say more? We/You all know I am both! Lorikeets have brush-tipped tongues for sweet nectar tasting. I have a sandpaper tongue which is sweetened with tuna. At our Zoo, there's a special place where children can feed the lories. I snuck in there when the grand girl bean went to the Zoo last week and disguised myself. The sweet nectar was not as good as tuna.
