Family Ramphastidae

Toco Toucan

The 38 species in the toucan family are all found in Central America and northern South America. Their most famous feature is their large, colorful bill. While the bill looks heavy, it is actually hollow with support bony beams. It is actually somewhat fragile and has been known to break. Toucans are quite playful. Two of the birds will lock their bills together and push each other until one falls off the branch. They also play catch with small pieces of food.
