Did you know?
Toucans are a type of bird that lives in the Amazon Rainforests of South America, where they make their nests in the holes of trees and can live for up to 20 years.
There are 40 different species of Toucans.
They are known for their large and strikingly coloured bills, which can be four times the size of their head and can account for half of their total length!
Finding and catching food is aided by a toucan’s long tongue, which can measure up to 5.9 inches.
Toucans are omnivorous, eating a variety of foods including fruits and berries plus lizards, rodents, small birds, and an assortment of insects.

Interestingly, Toucans can only fly for small distances, as their wingspan is small – around the same length as their bodies.
They are social birds that like to travel in groups of 22 birds to search for food. They are also noisy birds who love to talk to each other using “toad-like” sounds.
