In an amusing incident, a pet ordered a ton of goodies from e-commerce website Amazon while his owner was away. Rocco, an African grey parrot, used his owner's Amazon Alexa device to order a range of his favourite snacks including watermelons, raisins, broccoli and ice cream, along with a light bulb and a kite, reports BBC. African grey parrots are famous for their ability to mimic speech.
Marion Wischnewski, the sanctuary worker who adopted Rocco after he was removed from the sanctuary for his foul mouth, said that she has to check her account every day to see what he has done.
“I have to check the shopping list when I come in from work and cancel all the items he's ordered,” Wischnewski told The Daily Mail.
Rocco loves to interact with the voice of Alexa and listen to music from Kings of Leon.
“They chat away to each other all day. Often I come in and there's music playing,” Wischnewski told The Daily Mail.
Fortunately, none of his orders go on to be purchases thanks to a parental lock that she put on the device.
