Perrots are the largest and most intelligent species of Parrots in the Cylinder. Together with fifteen other species of jungle birds, they are part of the Ara genus. Perrots are characterized by their large head, their crest, and their general intelligence. They live everywhere in the Cylinder, and are known to take part in multiple humans and bird civilizations. Perrots are known to live up to more than 80 years. Their major diet consist in seeds and vegetables, for which their strong curved bill is very adapted. However, modern Perrots are also well known for their refined cuisine, blending multiple textures in fulfilling meals. Like all birds, Perrots have a morphology that is perfectly adapted to flight. They have lightweight bones, very strong upper muscles, and long wings. Perrots are very vividly coloured, with a wide array of colour variation among ethnic groups. Their cultures often place a focal point on their appearance, and the role it has to show their social status. Despite being extremely intelligent, Perrots are generally looked down and oppressed by humans. In numerous civilizations, they are still taken as slaves or forced workers, although this is forbidden for humans.
