The Peacock: nature’s original “Fan Dancer.”

Peacocks; you gotta hand it to them: They are the original masters of flaunting and attention grabbing.

Known for their eye catching plumage adorned in iridescent emerald green and sapphire blue eyespot (sometimes ocellus), these ocellus laden plumes are used for “communication and courtship” which just sounds like an excellent tag line for nature’s original version of Tinder.
