Scientific classification - Argentine of Borneo

Kingdom: Animals
Phylum: Cordati
Subphylum: Vertebrates
Class: Birds
Order: Galliformi
Family: Phasianides
Genus: Argusianus
Species: A. grayi

ARgo del Borneo is a very rare phasianid on farms; it is an endemic species of Borneo, where it lives among the dense jungles.

Morphological characteristics

The male has a black tuft on the head, on the face has naked blue skin, the neck is reddish yellow, the rest of the body tends to be grayish with more metallic reflections than the greater Argus; the tail and the secondary remiges are adorned with ocelli. The female is substantially the same as the male but has a plumage with lighter shades and has no ocelli. Both sexes have light ocher beaks and legs and black eyes.


It has a mainly omnivorous diet, and in captivity it does not like, unlike the other kinds of phasianids, the mixtures of grains; like the Argo Maggiore, even off Borneo it can mate all year round and the female lays 2 eggs per brood.
