The Temminck's Tragopan is a pheasant species native to the forests of South and Northern Asia, from northern China to northeast India, Tibet, and northwest Vietnam. It inhabits high-altitude areas such as Southern Tibet and the Eastern Himalayas.

This medium-sized pheasant is known for its distinctive appearance, with a length of up to 9.4 inches. The Temminck's Tragopan has pink legs, a black bill, and white spotted plumage.

Females are less striking in appearance, with brown plumage and white spots, as well as blue skin around the eyes. Males, however, are brightly colored, with a striking blue face surrounded by a black outline. Additionally, they are capable of inflating a bib from their throat and a pair of horns from their crowns.

The diet of the Temminck's Tragopan primarily consists of plants, berries, and grasses.
