How Fast Are Peacocks?


Did you know that peacocks can reach speeds of up to 15 miles per hour? That’s pretty fast for a bird!

Peacocks are native to India and Sri Lanka and they’re usually found in woodlands and forests.

These birds are usually shy and elusive but they can be quite tame if they’re raised in captivity.

Peacocks are best known for their beautiful plumage.

The male peacock’s tail feathers can grow up to six feet long! The female peacock is smaller than the male and doesn’t have long tail feathers.

Both male and female peacocks make a loud screeching noise that sounds like they’re crying.

This is called “chirping.”

Peacocks are omnivorous birds which means that they eat both plants and animals.

Their diet consists of insects rodents snakes lizards and even small birds.

In the wild peacocks typically live for about 10 to 15 years.

But in captivity they can live up to 20 years or more.

So how fast are peacocks? Pretty fast! But they’re also beautiful birds with a long lifespan.

If you’re ever lucky enough to see one in person take a moment to appreciate these amazing creatures.
