[quote=shidei;43591286]Repeatedly touching parrots below the head and neck can cause significant behavioral issues because many species treat the rest of the body as a sort of erogenous zone where contact is often part of a breeding/mating ritual, which can lead to frustration caused by hormonal behavior./quote] Why do you know so much about parrot fondling?
Probably from random encounters. I know from two Dutch girls I overheard in the train from Oslo to Bergen in 2004 that sheep will die if you turn them on their back and that Margot always stood with her knees locked. I keep wondering why my mind hasn't archived this information yet...
Been kicked out of half a dozen zoos at this point so I'd say I'm pretty experienced.
Parrots are by far my favorite animal so I've absorbed quite a bit of information regarding them over the years. They're so freakin' cool and I'd love to own one (the smaller kind, not a macaw or anything like that) but it's irresponsible to own one for a multitude of reasons so I have to live vicariously through other peoples' YT videos of birds doing cute/funny/cool/all the above stuff
The first anthem used in Serpens Land was the British anthem: "God Save the King/Queen". To this day, the song (albeit with different lyrics) is used as the royal anthem of Serpens Land. Serpens Land's national anthem, "Loyalists of Serpens Land", was adopted as the official national anthem in 1983. "Loyalists of Serpens Land" originated as a pro-monarchy song during the Republican Era of Serpens Land. It was used in an unofficial capacity following the establishment of the Realm of Serpens Land.
"Loyalists of Serpens Land" makes reference to King Edward I's opposition to General Allard's regime during the Republican Era. Unlike "God Save the King", the lyric "[a]nd to our King and to our land" does not change with the gender of the monarch.
O come ye faithful loyalists of Serpens Land,
And to our King and to our land,
We pledge our loyalty to them,
While sparing nothing, giving all to Serpens Land!

Updated flag and coat of arms. I know a lot of people like to avoid the "seal on a bedsheet" design, but in all honesty, I am okay with having something like that. Sometimes, for realism's sake, you have to have a slightly uglier flag.
