Ocellated Turkey

Ocellated Turkey

Leg lengths of the ocellated turkey differ between sexes as females have shorter legs than males.

Like North American turkeys, leg lengths of the ocellated turkey differ between sexes. Average leg length for females is less than 5 inches as compared to over 6 inches for males, making male ocellated turkeys stand an inch or so taller than females.
