Loro Parque’s Max Planck Institute for Ornithology proves that there is no jealousy of food in parrots

Scientists from the Max-Planck-Institute for Ornithology, based at the Max-Planck Comparative Cognition Research station in the Loro Parque, Tenerife, found that four species of parrots did not show any negative reaction to their partner receiving a better pay-off than themselves from a human experimenter in exchange for tokens. Unlike most tested primate species so far, who so to speak “freak out” if their partner gets a better reward, the parrots reacted neither to their partner receiving something better for the same effort (i.e. to an unequal food distribution), nor to having to work harder for the same reward (thus to unequal effort).
