ocellated turkey, Agriocharis ocellata(noun)
wild turkey of Central America and northern South America
The Ocellated Turkey is a species of turkey residing primarily in the Yucatán Peninsula. A relative of the Wild Turkey, it was sometimes previously treated in a genus of its own, but the differences between the two turkeys are currently considered too small to justify generic segregation. It is relatively large bird, at around 70–122 cm long and an average weight of 3 kg in females and 5 kg in males. The Ocellated Turkey lives only in a 130,000 km² range in the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico--which includes all or part the states of Quintana Roo, Campeche, Yucatán, Tabasco, and Chiapas--as well as the northern parts of Belize and Guatemala.
