This video of a peacock flying at the Ranthambore National Park is crazy viral
The internet is stupefied after watching a video of a peacock flying at the Ranthambore National Park in Rajasthan. The eight-second clip was recorded by wildlife photographer Harsha Narasimhamurthy while Susanta Nanda of the Indian Forest Service shared it on Twitter.
Due to its long tail features, peacocks cannot fly long distances. The bird, however, can cover short lengths by flying. It first runs and then hops before taking flight. A peacock's tail feathers are often up to six feet long and constitute 60 percent of its body length. The bird generally manages to fly up to the lowest branch of a tree.
"This is how a peacock flies. The tail feathers might grow up to six feet and is more than 60% of body length," Susanta Nanda said in the caption of the post.
