They have unwittingly provided him with a mini gym

I often see Mr. ‘Crazy’ Parrot gnawing at a cuttlebone that is wedged between the bars of his cage. I asked the tall person what a cuttlebone is and why does Mr. ‘Crazy’ Parrot keep biting it. The tall person said that a cuttlebone is the internal shell of a small squid called a cuttlefish and is a good source of calcium, just like the bones I eat. Hmm, I suppose that’s good. However, the tall person went on to say that the cuttlebone also helps to exercise and strengthen Mr. ‘Crazy’ Parrot’s jaw and beak. I was astonished! Mr. ‘Crazy’ Parrot has been provided with the means to supersize his bite? You could have knocked me down with a feather! No wonder it hurt so much when he pecked my nose. All this time, Mr. ‘Crazy’ Parrot has been training hard and De and the tall person had unwittingly provided him with a mini gym.

Well, two can play at that game Mr. ‘Crazy’ Parrot – De! Can I have another dinosaur bone please?
