Toucan (Aulacorhynchus Caeruleogularis) has 40 different species.

The Toucan weighs approximately 400gms (just under a pound). The biggest Toucan is 64–76cm (25–30ins) long. The smallest is 33–38cm (13–15ins) long.

Toucans can live up to 20 years.

The Toucan’s diet consists of fruits, bird eggs, insects, rodents, reptiles and other weaker birds.

Toucans have two adaptations that help them survive. The first is that they have is the claws on each leg; two in the front and two in the back to help them stand on trees. The other is the colour of its feathers change, in order to blend into its surroundings.

Toucans live mostly live in the canopy of the rainforests of Eastern South America.

The predators of the Toucan are humans, big cats and its worst enemy is the Jaguar.

The majority of Toucans are black and white although some have brightly coloured feathers and large and colourful bills (beaks) with long tails. They use these brightly coloured feathers to attract mates.

Toucans aren’t born with large bills; the bills take several months to develop to full size. Scientists haven’t figured out why the bills of the Toucan are so big. The biggest bill is on the male Taco Toucan.Their bills are useful for feeding; reaching and peeling fruit however they’re not much use for combating predators.

Three interesting facts about Toucans are: their tongues are feathered; they’re related to woodpeckers; their bill is always a pattern.

Toucans either live solitary or with a mate.

They sleep in holes that are in trees and if they don’t fit, they will turn themselves into a feathery ball to make their body smaller.

They have small wings, as they usually only travel small distances.

They are one of the nosiest birds in the world. You can hear the sound of a toucan over a 800m (½ a mile) away.

The mother toucan gives birth to 2–4 eggs. The hatchlings are born blind. They leave the nest when 8 weeks old.
