Endemic to Costa Rica and Panama, the Black Guan spends it's time in the trees, being almost completely arboreal. The bird is a frugivore, meaning its diet consists almost entirely of fruit. A study done in Monteverde showed that the guan feeds on at least 26 species of fruits, from large fruits of the avocado family to tiny fruits of the nettle family.
Due to its limited range & pressures from habitat loss and hunting, the Black Guan is listed as near-threatened. Danger to this species has been reduced because of the abundance of land conserved throughout its range.
