My quetzal is a species of bird. They live in mountainous parts of tropical rainforests in Central America. They were respected by the Mayans, who used their feathers as a symbol of wealth. They are known for their bright colors, and red chest. They look very graceful when in flight and although they are not very good at it, they can still fly fast when in trouble. If their habitat gets deforested, they can leave the mountain area and find another forest, or find homes in ground burrows. They would also have smaller eyes because it would be less dim. If another invasive predator species comes, they can get bigger wings to fly faster and higher to escape them, and they can also develop other defensive mechanisms, like sharper claws to fight back. In my picture, the normal quetzal is on the left and the adapted one is on the right.
