Inhabit tropical forests, mangroves, arable land and cultivated lands. Are usually found in pairs, less often in flocks. Feed on fruits, walnuts, grains, berries.

In captivity, the Surinam Amazons multiply easier than the other types of Amazons. The marriage period in North America begins from February or March to June-July. There are 3-4 eggs in one masonry. The size of the nesting box should correspond to the size: 30x30x60 cm. The incubation period lasts 24-26 days. Chicks are shifting at 10-12 weeks of age. During propagation, males become aggressive to females. Cutting feathers to the reproduction period helps females run away from males and hide in shelters.
