Artist's Description

The Helmeted Guineafowl (Numida meleagris) is the best known of the guineafowl bird family, Numididae, and the only member of the genus Numida. It breeds in Africa, mainly south of the Sahara, and has been widely introduced into the West Indies, Brazil, Australia and southern France.
Info
Die naam “Poelpetaan” is vir my so mooi! Die Nederlandse benamings vir die voël is poelepetaat, poelepintade of poelepetane. Dit kom uit die Frans: poule pintade (poule beteken hoender en pintade beteken gespikkeld). Jy kan baie meer hier wys word. Ons taal is so lieflik!
’n Tarentaal, die gespikkelde fenomeen van die Afrika-bos.
Met sy kaal kop, spikkels en “horing” op die kop draf hy sy haastige draf agter sade en plantbolle aan. Maar hy is ook lief vir insekte, en bosluise is sy poeding. As jy jou hond luisvry wil hou, sê hulle, ontbied ’n tarentaal!
