Meet Rainbow, a lorikeet parrot from Sydney, who loves to clean its owner's teeth.

It was the parrot's teeth-cleaning talent that reunited him with its owners after he went missing from his home on Sydney's northern beaches, reports the Daily Telegraph.

The Manly Daily newspaper had reported that the bird had been found in Belrose Park.

Michelle Needham, of Brookvale, was among those to step forward to claim the lost lorikeet.

'I know it is Rainbow," she said.

"I know his little face and the way his feathers stick out at the front."

"(And) if you open your mouth, he will stick his head in and clean your teeth," she added.

Meanwhile, the bird had already shown his fondness for cleaning teeth while in the care of the finder's family. (ANI)
