In general, Galahs are around 35cm in length and weigh around 270-350g. They are pale grey or darker grey with a pale grey rump, pink face and chest and a light pink crest. The skin around their eyes is white and bare, and they have grey legs. Sexes are similar, though the male has dark brown irises while the females are mid-brown or red.
These cockatoos are playful parrots who have lots of energy and can learn to perform tricks or mimic human speech. Their lifespan is 20-40 years so to take one is a long-term commitment.
