Polydactyl Parakeet

I saw a grey and polydactyl mutation of Indian Ringnecked Parakeet (Psittacula krameri manillensis) at a local bird store.

The extra claw extends from an extra phalange extending from digit 1 (viewable on the zygodacytly map).

In addition to hand-tameness and generally pleasant personality, the extra phalange contributed positively to the price of this pet.
