    Found it 


    The Military Macaw (Ara militaris) is a large parrot and a medium-sized member of the macaw genus. Though considered vulnerable as a wild species, it is still commonly found in the pet trade industry. A predominantly green bird, it is found in the forests of Mexico and South America.


    The population and distribution of the Military Macaw has been decreasing over the past fifty years. The abundance of the Military Macaw has now decreased to less than 10,000 globally. This decrease is mostly due to deforestation and the capturing of wild birds for the pet trade industry. Military Macaws are now listed as Vulnerable on the 2006 IUCN Red List Category. They are also listed as CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) Appendix I, which protects the birds from being captured for trade.


     Life Expectancy: 60 years average, up to 80 years

    Doesn't this also depend on the type of tank he's riding in?

    Blue and Yellow Macaws are found in Mexico, Central and South America. They prefer rain forest habitats and spend much of their time in the upper canopy. They have a lifespan of about 80 years in captivity.


    Scarlet Macaws are found in Mexico, Central and South America. They prefer rain forest habitats and spend much of their time in the upper canopy. They have a lifespan of about 75 years in captivity.


    I do not know what a military Macaw is.
