Chinese zoo wows tourists with peacock’s mechanical tail

OFF we go to see the peacock at Beijing Wild Animal Park. This peacock can spread his tail to order. Ok, not exactly his own tail, more the mechical one tied to his nether reagions by animal experts.

A zoo keeper explains:

“Visitors are happy to pay to pose in front of a peacock spreading his tail but they only do it in spring when they’re breeding. So to keep the money coming in we have to tie the tail to the bird and when they’ve paid, we spread it out for the picture.” 

Great stuff.
