:idea: Maybe you could try holding the can by him/her real quick while someone takes the picture. Just a suggestion

Can't wait to snag a pic of Dante next to a soda can (provided I can keep him from trying to lick it). This thread was a great idea!

This is an adorable posting and very helpful!! Thank you everyone. OH! I found the source of the fabulous Amazon poster that shows all the species in ( close to ) scale.
It has to be ordered in a minimum order of 50. Is there any interest out there for me to purchase and resell to this group. I will try and get them to send me a image that
I can post - they also do a whole list of other birds - from finch to Macaw species. Let me know if there is interest. Lynne

That would be an interesting poster. I wonder how accurate it is and if they have all ZON species? I may be interested depending on a few things.:)

Amos doesn't want to play
Gryphon looks smaller in the picture than he really is but I couldn't get him closer to the can
