Arabian Bustard

Ardeotis arabs (Linnaeus, 1758)

The Arabian Bustard (Ardeotis arabs) is a species of bird in the bustard family. It is part of the largest-bodied genus (Ardeotis) and, though little known, appears to be a fairly typical species in that group. As in all bustards, the male Arabian bustard is much larger than the female. Males have been found to weigh 5.7–10.9 kg (13–24 lb), while females weigh 4.5–7.7 kg (9.9–17 lb). The record-sized male Arabian bustard weighed 16.8 kg (37 lb). These birds stand from 70 cm (28 in) tall in females to 92 cm (36 in) tall in males. They are fairly similar in overall appearance to the Kori Bustard, with a brown body, gray neck and white underside, but are noticeably smaller, with a more elegant, slender build. They are also differ in having white checkered covert pattern at the end of the folded wing, as opposed to various black-and-white patterns as seen in other large African bustards. These birds mainly live off arthropods and larvae. Source: Wikipedia
