R2-D2 from the Star Wars Movies

Characteristics/Tidbits

Likes to lie on her back

Likes to hang upside down
Loves to chew
Only likes toys she can destroy
When she takes a bath, she only gets her face wet (pretty silly)
She does not like bare feet
R2 will eat just about anything I put in front of her. Favorite foods include: NutriBerries, Strawberries, Bananas, Pea Pods, Grapes, Carrots, Corn, Mega-Millet, Grape Nuts (and tries to drink the milk too!)

Temperament

Can be nippy. DOES NOT LIKE CHILDREN! She has bitten Kate twice now.

"Vocalization"

This species isn't known for it's screaming. She is no exception. She has a tendency to scream when we are washing and drying dishes, but it can't be compared to a conure or macaw scream.

Talking Ability

R2 doesn't speak very well, but this species is not noted for its speaking ability. When she does talk, she reminds me of a two year old. We can understand what she is saying, but others may not. If we tell others what she is saying, they can "hear it" also. She can say Pretty Bird clearly, do a variety of whistles, give you a Kiss and make the noise, and blow you a raspberry!
