African Pied Crow

Some crows can be bred in captivity and hand-raised so that they are tame and love humans. This is a photo of a young African Pied Crow and his human. They are very intelligent, second only to chimps and humans, and can even be taught to talk, to do tricks, and many other things. Just like with any pet you plan to purchase, you should do a lot of research on the animal's care and other requirements beforehand.
