Every creature on earth, well mostly every creature takes a bath in some form or another. Elephants use both mud and water to stay clean and protect their skin. Pigs roll in the mud to prevent sunburn. Cats bathe themselves several times a day. Even birds enjoy a good bath now and again! Miss Iris is no exception – she is a 13-year old Hyacinth Macaw.
As you will see when you watch the video, Miss Iris is also quite particular about her bathing ritual. Mom has to get the temperature and the pressure just right! If not, Miss Iris will fix it herself! Her human said Miss Iris tests the water with her foot first to make sure it is perfect! This is a cute battle between mom and bird over the water.
