Sekilas rupanya dari jauh seperti ayam karena memang masuk keluarga ayam-ayaman, tapi dari dekat si jantan bulunya sangat indah, biru mengkilat kena cahaya, dan akan berwarna kehitaman di tempat teduh, sedang betina berwarna coklat,dan warna merah sekitar mata adalah ciri khas keindahannya. Yuk sama-sama lestarikan satwa khas ini.
Photo-photo berikut adalah koleksi dari Kebun Binatang di Belgia dan Inggriss, sementara kebun binatang kita sendiri tidak punya koleksinya, miris sekali memang.
Sumatran Pheasant; hoogerwerfi - Atejh Pheasant, Aceh Pheasant
Justification This pheasant qualifies as Vulnerable. There are few records, indicating that it has a small population, which is declining and becoming increasingly fragmented owing to clearance of mid-altitude forests.
|Salvadori's Pheasant Lophura inornata - Male|
Range & Population Lophura inornata is endemic to Sumatra, Indonesia, where it is known from at least 10 localities in the central and south Barisan mountain range. There are recent records from at least two of these sites, Gunung Kaba and Gunung Kerinci, both within Kerinci-Seblat National Park. It was described as fairly common around Kerinci in the early 1900s
Classified as Vulnerable (VU) on the IUCN Red List 2007 and 2008

Salvadori's Pheasant Lophura inornata - Female
Ecology It is a resident of lower (and possibly upper) montane humid forest from c.800-2,200 m, most observations coming from above 1,000 m. It appears to prefer primary, unlogged forest, but also frequents disturbed and degraded habitats in close proximity to primary forest.
Threats In Kerinci-Seblat National Park, the species is declining due to heavy trapping by local people for food. Much of the forest within the lower part of the species's altitudinal range around Kerinci has already been cleared for shifting cultivation, and is vulnerable to further illegal agricultural encroachment and increasingly frequent drought fires.
Action The species is known to occur in at least one large protected area, the Kerinci-Seblat National Park, plus two other areas currently designated as protection forest, but proposed for upgrading to wildlife reserves, Gunung Singgalang and Bukit Dingin/Gunung Dempu.
