    Ocellated turkeys are gorgeous birds.There was a pair on Craigslist a while back, but they were taxidermy, and they wanted something like 1500.00 apiece.Apparently you can go on turkey hunts in the Yucatan and have them stuffed to bring home. I wonder what a living bird would cost?

    Edit cause I mispelled Ocellated. Had to look them up after I saw the picture.
