Trumpeter Hornbill


Hornbills are named because of their very large bills with a casqueWhat does casque mean? on top. To support their large bill, the first two neck vertebrae are fused together. Hornbills bear a resemblance to toucans, but the two are very unrelated, since hornbills are Old World birds of Africa, tropical areas of Asia and Australia, whereas Toucans are New World birds of South America.
