Peacock

The peacock is found in Asia and Africa, depending on the species (there are three birds typically considered "peacocks"). Peacocks are usually found in tropical forests where they feed on plant parts, seeds, flower petals and insects.

Males are famous for their colorful tails which they use to attract the brown colored females.




The Mongabay Kids site (kids.mongabay.com) aims to help children learn about rainforests and the environment. This site is still under development and I am working to add additional content as time permits. If you have comments or are interested in submitting educational content for the site, please feel free to contact me.

The site is available in many different languages, including Portuguese, Chinese, French, Spanish, Japanese, and German.
