The lifespan of a peacock in captivity is usually 40 to 50 years, which is much longer than most other bird species. Peahens also tend to live longer than other female birds, with some peahens living up to 20 years. Most peahens only mate with one male, which is why the male peahen is the only one that is truly monogamous.
Peacocks, also known as peafowl, are medium-sized birds related to pheasants. They live in the Southern Hemisphere’s warm temperatures. They are thought to have originated in Asia, although they are now found in Africa and portions of Australia. They are particularly prevalent in India. Peacocks may be found in deserts, arid savannas, woods, and densely forested places.
