When conures became pets
by: Tracie

I have no clue what pets pirates kept, sorry. The other information I have below is just what I have read, and I do not have any "facts" as far as records to prove what others have said.

Conures have been reported in Mexico, Central America, Caribbean Islands and South America in old journals.

Conures have been imported into Europe and the U.S. for over 100 years. The green conure were reported being bred in the U.S. in the mid-1930s. But someone could have captured a conure long before this and had it as a pet and nobody would ever know.

Hopefully others will have more information and will know if there are any reports of pirates having conures.

We have more information about conures on our Conure page.
