A Scarlet Macaw is a large red, yellow, and blue Central and South American parrot. They are found in Mexico, Central America and South America. An adult Scarlet Macaw weighs about 2.3 pounds and they are about 3 feet tall. Most Scarlet Macaws are vegetarian so they eat nuts, seeds, leaves, fruits, and insects. They have large and flexible beaks which can allow them to eat tough nuts and unripened fruits which is hard for most birds to eat. They can live up to 75-90 years. In 2020, the population for Scarlet Macaw’s was about 5,000 so I honestly think they will be extinct in about 100 years from now. Since they live in rain forests, I think in 100 years from now the rain forest will be in ruins. We are ruining the world by overpopulating it so I really don’t think there will be a rain forest.
