Picture of Argus_Pheasant

The Argus Pheasant (Argusianus argus) is a bird of the family Phasianidae found in the jungles of the Malay Peninsula, Sumatra, and Borneo. The Argus pheasant is named after the 100-eyed Greek mythological creature Argus, because of the many eye-like iridescent spots on the inner wing feathers of the male. Although the bird is not much larger than a large chicken when divested of its plumage, the total length, including the tail feathers, is more than 1.5 m. The tail consists of twelve feathers, of which the two middle ones are very long. The plumage of both sexes is simple and dull in colour except for the male's beautiful inner wing feathers. In both sexes the bill is nearly as long as the rest of the head, and the sides of the head and neck have almost no feathers. The Argus Pheasant lives in jungles of the Malay Peninsula, Sumatra, and Borneo.
