The male Slaty-tailed Trogon has a green head, back and throat, orange bills, and a red lower part and dark gray tail. The female’s abdomen is dark gray, but the abdomen is red. The diagnostic figure of this species in this country is an unpatterned dark gray tail. In Costa Rica, it can be establish on two hillsides in the lowlands and foothills. It is more ordinary in the canopy and middle levels of mature moist forests, and irregularly visits to forest edges and gardens. It feeds on fruits and invertebrates, and it has also been reported to feed on small vertebrates such as lizards. Many times, this bird follows the white-faced monkey troops and other flocks to hunt down insects that are tiresome to escape. The voice is often called by tall trees, a series of hoarse squeaks to find this species. Like all long-horned gons in Costa Rica, the nest of chestnut-tailed long-horned gon is located in a cavity, usually a rotting tree trunk or an active termite nest.
