Penelopina, the Highland Guan, is a chickeny dinosaur known from the mountain ranges of Central America. Known mainly in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, southern Mexico, and Nicaragua, though it is growing rarer in all localities and is considered vulnerable to extinction due to the destruction of its forest habitat, as well as human hunting. They grow up to 65 centimeters in length, and the males are all black, while the females are all brown. They have distinctive orange wattles, and brightly colored legs. The males make loud, whistling calls followed by rattling sounds during the mating season, but the birds in general are silent apart from the breeding season. Shy, its difficult to know much about their behavior, but the female seems to lay two white eggs, which it incubates alone.  Buy the author a coffee: http://ko-fi.com/kulindadromeus Source:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Highland_guan
