Meet Oscar The Naked Dancing Cockatoo
As far as life goes being a bird of paradise, Oscar seems to have come off second best. The cockatoo is turning some heads and it's not for the reason you may think - she's totally bald. Twelve years ago, Oscar was given six months to live after developed a beak and feather disease. But she battled on and the bird, from Broward County Humane Society in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has become a hit on YouTube. "She looks like a bald chicken," said one of her keepers. "There's no getting away from it." Then adding, "I love this bird."
