Scarlet Macaws and Blue Macaws are critters that spawn in the Jungle during the daytime.

Macaws have only 5 health and no defense, and can be damaged by other enemies and players.

Macaws can be caught with any Bug Net to be carried around in the inventory and released later, or crafted into animated decorative furniture (Scarlet / Blue Macaw Cage). Once crafted, the Macaws cannot be released again, unless the furniture item is de-crafted via Shimmer(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions).

Macaws can be spawned by the Macaw Statue, however statue-spawned critters cannot be caught with any Bug Net, and will disappear in a puff of smoke when the player attempts to do so.
