Few animals are as distinct as the peafowl, also known as the peacock. There are two Asiatic and one African species of peafowl. Having brightly colored plumage and long beautiful trains, peacocks are usually a favorite at our park. Did you know that only the males have colorful feathers? The female are grey or brown, but the males have vivid colors which they display to attract a mate.
One distinguishing feature of the peacock is the male’s long train of bright, iridescent colors. They can display them or let them trail behind them, depending on if they are seeking attention from females. We have peacocks freely walking around for you to see and if you’re lucky, you can see one show off a bit!
