the Answer to a question, females or males of a peacock is more beautiful, will be obvious to those whose knowledge of this bird is not limited to idea that this paradise creation having fantastic plumage. At the same time some also do not know that at peacocks such feathers are inherent only in males.
Эстетическая the party of a question in fauna, including birds, differs from the world human. And really: if at people carry women to the fair sex, then at peacocks and many other bird species the situation develops the return. The nature disposed in such a way that at peacocks of externally more beautiful the men's individual is.
To learn why it developed so, it will be for certain interesting to everyone. To understand it, it is necessary to understand what plumage actually the peacock and a peahen have (by such term designate a female of birds of this look).
In the nature there are peacocks having the most different color including white . However the Indian look will become more bright example. It is considered the most widespread. To understand how peacocks look, it is possible, having considered the Indian kind of birds which a little in what differs from others.
As it was already noted, the peacock male is the typical representative of a genus of those birds who win attention of a female brightness of the color. It really has plumage of extraordinary, fantastic beauty. On the head, in a breast and a cervical zone it differs in bright blue color. On a back at a peacock feathers received a green shade. Black lower body. And the ends of wings of a male have a red shade. On a little head the cop resembling a crown superficially towers.
But special attention at a male of peacocks the tail deserves. It mostly wins general applause. The tail of birds of this look is a subject of their pride. It has the fanlike form. the Male can put a tail, and after it to dismiss if wants to make a due impression on the girlfriend. Only actually it is not a tail, and the feathers growing over it. Length of a feather of a tail reaches 0.5 m, and here to a nadkhvostya much more long and reaches 1.5 m
In turn, a samochka of a peacock, or as it is called, the peahen, has much more modest plumage and the smaller sizes. It is allocated with a color of a brown or brownish shade, has blue-green feathers on a neck. Occasionally meet a female and other color. The cop on the head of a peahen has a brown shade too.
The fact that the female is allocated with by nature more modest color has quite logical explanation. The main purpose of a peahen consists in removal of posterity. And having the color as little as possible drawing attention of predators the female will be able to merge with the nature and is safe to hatch out eggs. Nevertheless cannot call a peahen an ugly bird in any way. She received by nature big expressive eyes and sedate gait.
The fact that before achievement of 1.5-year age the peacock and a peahen have a brown-gray shade of feathers is very curious. After a color of a men's individual begins to change and already approximately by 3 years when the male ripens for reproduction, it is possible to observe how its coloring reaches that beauty which people got used to admire.
Beauty of a peacock would be fuller if he as a bird of paradise, would have an angelic voice. Actually a voice of a peacock very unpleasant also reminds something shout of a cat. Interestingly and that, as the male, and a female prefer to make sounds in anticipation of rainy weather.
So, the bright color of plumage of a male is also that way of drawing attention of the girlfriend peahen. It is one of the tricks allowing to receive as the bigger posterity is possible. Thus men's individuals try to show beauty, force and health.
Bright plumage of peacocks can be explained also with marriage behavior of males . Sometimes they fight with rivals to push away them from the darling. At this moment the female watches from outside all action. But the main thing begins only then. At this moment it is possible to observe how the men's individual, having spread a tail, shows to the girlfriend all the power and beauty. After the female makes the choice and pairing will come to the end, it is possible to see how the male will dump the marvelous loop. Before the new marriage season begins, to its nadkhvostya grows again.
Earlier people collected these feathers and traded in them. However now this trade is forbidden. It is made in order that it was possible to avoid destruction of this beautiful bird.
The way to undertake blow is one more reason of brighter color of a male, having become a bait for a predator. It allows it to protect a peahen and future posterity. It should be noted that males by the nature of the poligamna. The peahen is capable to lay on average from 5 to 7 eggs for time.
In the nature everything harmoniously and gives in to a logical explanation. And the fact that the men's individual of an imperial bird is allocated with brighter color has the mass of the reasons. Peacocks were and will always remain a subject of general admiration. And an opportunity to observe this delightful creation is given today by all zoos in the world.
