These inhabitants of amazon forests prefer to stay in the wild, away from human prying and nosiness. In some regions, they are hunted for games, but it’s safe to say that they don’t like humans or captivity. Unlike other birds, they are not good at flying but can run fast if needed. Therefore, most of their time is spent either walking on the ground or hopping from one perch to another.
They love to eat fruits, especially fallen ones but don’t mind insects at dinner. The noisy courtship behavior these birds show, involving stuttering and excited somersaults, is worth watching. They also make weird noises to either mark their territory or warn others about the danger. Hence indigenous people used them as guard dogs against snakes or other predators.
