A Scarlet Macaw (Ara macao) spreads its wings while sitting on the arm of a handler at Xcaret's ecological park in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The park has entered into the Guinness World Records for having the biggest number of endangered macaws born in captivity in the same place over one year. A total of 105 Scarlet Macaws and Green Macaws (Ara militaris) have been born in captivity at the park since 2009.
