No body (meaning animal body) was meant to consume it in its final form (it doesn't exist in vegetables, only in animal bodies) but to produce as much as it needs from dietary betacarotene so, when a herbivore (as our companion parrots are with the possible exception of two species) ingest vit A, any excess of it ends up in the liver in the form of fatty nodules because nature never gave their bodies the capacity to get rid of it.

My birds love to chew them up and the natural holes make a wonderful place for treats, they make great perches too!
