The GREAT ARGUS is native to the jungles of Borneo, Sumatra and the Malay Peninsula in southeast Asia. It is a brown-plumaged pheasant with a blue head and neck, rufous red upper breast, black hair-like feathers on crown and nape, and red legs. The male is among the largest of all pheasants. He measures 160–200 cm in total length, including a tail of 105–143 cm, and weighs 2.04–2.72 kg. It has very long tail feathers with many eyes. Argus is a hundred-eyed giant in Greek mythology.
