The great argus pheasant (Argusianus argus) is a species of pheasant. The scientific name of the Great Argus was given in reference to the many eyes-like pattern on its wings. Argus is a hundred-eyed giant in Greek mythology. The great argus is native to the jungles of Borneo, Sumatra and the Malay Peninsula in southeast Asia.
