The Great Curassow (Crax rubra) is a large, pheasant-like bird from the Neotropics. At 78 100 centimetres (31 39 in) in length and 3.1 4.8 kilograms (6.8 11 lb) in weight, this is a very large cracid. No other cracid match its maximum weight, but its length is matched by a few other cracids. The male is black with a curly crest, a white belly, and a yellow knob on its bill. There are three morphs of female Great Curassows: Barred morph females with barred neck, mantle, wings and tail, rufous morph with an overall reddish brown plumage and a barred tail, and dark morph female with a blackish neck, mantle and tail (the tail often faintly vermiculated), and some barring to the wings.
