The animal from our Peacock cursor pack is more gorgeous when you see it in front of you in the zoo or farm. Peacocks are large, colorful pheasants known for their iridescent tails. These tail feathers, or coverts, spread out in a distinctive train that is more than 60 percent of the bird’s total body length and boast colorful eye markings of blue, gold, red, and other hues. Strictly, the male is a peacock, and the female is a peahen - both are peafowl. The most-recognizable species of peafowl is the blue or Indian.
