Description

Pheasant Negative Footprint measures 3.03 X 2.08 inches. Pheasant Negative Footprint is made of polyurethane resin in the USA.

Pheasant birds have four toes, with the first toe, or hallux, turned backwards. On some birds, such as pheasants, this toe is elevated and may not even touch the ground.

The Pheasant foot had a sharp conical protrusion, called a spur, about half an inch up from the back toe. This spur, also present on turkeys, can grow to impressive size and is used in fighting for dominance. Pheasants use their strong feet to scratch the dirt and leaf litter to uncover seeds and insects.

Pheasants are birds of several genera within the family Phasianidae in the order Galliformes. Although they can be found all over the world in introduced (and captive) populations, the pheasant genera native range is restricted to Eurasia.

Pheasants or Phasianus colchicus are characterised by strong sexual dimorphism, males being highly decorated with bright colors and adornments such as wattles. Males are usually larger than females and have longer tails. Males play no part in rearing the young.

A pheasant’s call or cry can be recognised due to the fact it sounds like a rusty sink or valve being turned.

Pheasants eat mostly seeds, grains, roots, and berries, while in the summer they take advantage of insects, fresh green shoots, spiders, earthworms, and snails.

The best-known is the common pheasant, which is widespread throughout the world, introduced feral populations and in farm operations. Various other pheasant species are popular in aviaries, such as the golden pheasant.

Ring-necked pheasant is both the name used for the species as a whole in North America and also the collective name for a number of subspecies and their intergrades that have white neck rings.

It is a well-known gamebird, among those of more than regional importance perhaps the most widespread and ancient one in the whole world. The common pheasant is one of the world’s most hunted birds. It has been introduced for that purpose to many regions, and is also common on game farms where it is commercially bred.
