Red-legged Seriema

Cariama cristata

Seriemas belong to the same family as coots, cranes and rails. The red-legged seriema is the larger of the two seriema species, reaching a height of 85cm.



Size: 75 - 90cm
Weight: 1.5kg



The red-legged seriema is found in grasslands, savannahs, dry woodlands and open forests.



Frogs, reptiles and rodents are commonly eaten, along with insects, fruits and seeds. They will even forage for injured prey in recently burnt wood or grassland.



Seriemas are usually seen in pairs or family groups. They nest as high as 3 metres (10 ft) off the ground, and both parents incubate the 2 to 3 eggs.



Red-legged seriemas are not classed as endangered as they have a large, stable population, found over a large range.
