    hi, i have a cockatoo that i got at 2 months old and from what i
    have seen they act like they are going to attack if the are scared
    or when they are playing with you it is hard some times to tell
    one from the other but with time you will be able to tell.
    he has to bond with you and that might take some time but when he
    does he will trust olny you so make sure you reealy want him for
    the rest of you life because they live around 100 years,
