Brief SummaryRead full entry
BiologyVery little has been documented on the biology of this species. Pairings have been noted from August, accompanied by male display songs and 'booming', and nests have been observed in October (2). Just a single egg is produced by females each season, a reproductive rate that is unusually low for gamebirds (5). Like other curassows, the diet consists of fruit, seeds, soft plants, larvae and insects (2).
