Incubation Period::

Description - Male: Unlike the other two Monal species, the Sclater's male has no obvious and much shorter crest. Slightly smaller than the Impeyan, the crown is bluish green, the sides of the neck are metallic reddish bronze; the facial skin is blue. The rest of the upper parts metallic green, blue and black. A most noticeable feature is the white back and rump that extends to a broad chestnut band on the tail which is tipped with white. orientalis males have a narrower tail band.

Description - Female: Females are darker than other Monals and with no crest, tail tipped with white and shorter; overall brown with fine barring of dark brown and buff on breast.

Status in Captivity:

Misc Notes: Very rare, none believed to be kept outside of China. Paul Johnsgard reported in a 2008 issue of the Gazette, that six were being held at the Beijing Breeding Center for Breeding Endangered Animals. The photo provided with this sheet was taken at the center by John Corder. As of January 2012, I do not have data of their captive status.
