[InKunming--Kunming] Do you remember a funny report about peacocks and Yunnan University? Two peacocks escaped from Kunming Yuantong Zoo and flew into Yunnan University hanging out for three hours last year, which made a splash on the internet. This year, Yunnan University said on its official micro-blog that six peacocks settle down at Chenggong Campus of Yunnan University.

The photos posted on the micro-blog show that several peacocks are strolling on the verdant lawn. Wearing small blue “crowns” on the head and dressing up in emerald green “gown”, they are trying to get used to the new environment.

At the same time, Yunnan University said on the micro-blog, "students, we warmly welcome you spare time to visit gorgeous peacocks. Given the circumstance that these peacocks are adapting to the new environment, you should behave yourself while visiting. Do not make noise and feed them as you wish. If you want to take pictures, please turn off your flash light.”

Six blue peacocks (4 males and 2 females) were introduced from Stone Forest. At present, these peacocks are kept in captivity and fed with cereals and grasses. When they are fully accustomed to the environment, they will be raised in free-range. Blue peacocks enjoy living in quiet places. The surrounding environment of Zehu lake of Yunnan University is silent and cozy, which is very suitable for raising blue peacocks, according to the staff of Yunnan University.

It is said that the six peacocks like elves make Zehu more colorful and charming. There is also a sound saying that it symbolizes a new “look” for Yunnan University and there will be more talents in the campus.
