Storyboard Text

  • These two peacocks are male. As you can see there is genetic variation. What I mean is that some will have a trait for a larger fan of wings while the others will have the trait for a fan of shorter wings. 
  • The female peacocks are attracted more to other peacocks with a larger fan of feathers. 
  • The female peacock will mate with the peacock that has the larger fan of feathers. 
  • The trait of having a large fan of feathers will pass to their offspring. Since some peacocks might be eaten by predators, meaning not all will survive into adult hood,the female peacock will over produce. 
  • Unfortunately for the other male peacocks who have a fan of short feathers they won't able to reproduce. This is because of differential survival and reproduction. In this case the peacock has a trait that prevents him from being able to attract a mate.
