Mynahs are sociable and enjoy positive interaction on a
daily basis. They’re also quite active. Mynahs have a
captivating personality and often cock their heads when mimicking human voices. They are also curious, playful and inquisitive. Mynahs are capable to developing an extensive vocabulary, sometimes sounding more like a human than other popular talking parrots. The most popular pet mynah species are the Greater Indian Hill mynah and the Java Hill mynah. Java Hill mynah’s are the larger of the two and are notable for having a clearer, more human-like voice.
