Teacocks by ursulav Teacocks by ursulav
The male teacock's extravagant handles evolved to attract the attention of the drabber-colored teahen. The males with the largest, glossiest, and most brilliantly colored handles will attract a small harem of females. Males compete only by display, and will not engage in actual battle for fear of chipping.

The downside to the spectacular display by the males is that lugging around such a weight of crockery makes them more vulnerable to hunters, particularly the aquatic crockpotodile, the teacock's chief predator.

...I was nearly asleep, and then it came to me in one of those blinding flashes. "TEACOCKS! OF COURSE!" I'm not well. And I seem to be on a teapot kick lately.
