Timneh African Greys have an average lifespan of 40 to 50 years and also possess a highly intelligent and fun-loving personality, same as that of the Congo African Grey. African greys – both the Congo and Timneh — are intelligent, fun-loving animals that crave their owner’s attention.
The Timneh African Grey looks very similar to the Congo African Grey. Many people who are new to parrots find it difficult to differentiate between the two species as they look very similar. The more obvious difference between the two parrots is that Timneh Greys are smaller and darker in appearance and also have a smaller black beak with a beige patch located on the upper portion.
