Rhynoc Parrotkeepers are a type of Rhynoc that are encountered in Mermaid Coast, along with the Rhynoc Runners. When approached, the Parrotkeepers will use their parrots to protect themselves against Spyro's attacks. Only when the parrot no longer circles the rhynoc can the rhynoc be attacked. There is a similar Rhynoc found in Dusty Trails with a small vulture instead of a parrot.
