Amazing video footage shows the bizarre moment a girl’s pet cockatoo poked her head inside her owner’s mouth and yanked out a loose baby tooth.

Kylee Bobbitt, an 11-year-old girl from Lake St. Louis, Missouri, filmed herself and her bird, Penelope, as the little cockatoo performed a bit of beginner’s dentistry.

“I was wiggling my tooth and Nell normally likes to put her beak on my face when we are cuddling and I wondered if she could pull my tooth out,” Kylee said. “It didn’t hurt because my tooth was really, really loose and almost about to fall out. She put her head in my mouth and she was playing around with my other teeth for a while and then she got the right one and she just pulled it out.

Kylee’s mom Annie then shared the video online. The little girl was shocked but excited when she realized how many people were viewing it.

“When I saw it, I was freaking out. I’ve always wanted to have a video that goes viral,” she explained.

The little girl has long been obsessed with birds and apparently begged her parents to let her have a cockatoo for years before getting 1-year-old Penelope. Kylee even saved up half of the cost to buy the cockatoo herself!

“Penelope is my little baby and I love her so much. I take care of her every day. She’s one of my best friends,” Kylee said of her beloved bird. “She’s a bit crazy. She’s funny and eccentric but when she’s in a new environment or new people come to the house she gets shy. We have lots of cuddles together. I love cuddling with her.”
