Pheasant Coucal (Centropus phasianinus)

…a species of cuckoo (Cuculidae) which occurs in eastern and northern Australia and Papua New Guinea, where it inhabits subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical/tropical mangrove forests.  Pheasant coucals are large (50-70 cm (20 to 28 in)) and are adapted for feeding on the ground, leading to their shape being reminiscent of a pheasant. Pheasant coucals are predominately carnivorous, feeding on small reptiles and amphibians, bird eggs/young, small mammals, and a range of insects. 

Classification

Animalia-Chordata-Aves-Cuculiformes-Cuculidae-Centropus-C. phasianinus

I’ve seen a few people doing these and with all the Pokemon cards I’ve got laying around I just had to try it…plus I wanted an excuse to bust out the acrylics. I think I’m addicted.

If anyone wants to buy them they’re up for grabs on my brand new Etsy shop!
