Eye to eye with a Tucan Toco

Tucan Toco (Ramphastos toco)

The Toco is the biggest of all Toucans, weighing nearly 1 kg. Like all Toucans, it has a large beak that's amost as long as its body—in fact it didn't fit in the picture— but which is very light in weight. It lives in semi-open woodland and feeds on fruit, eggs and small animals. It nests high up off the ground in holes in trees and does not form large groups but lives alone or with its mate.
