Toucans are a type of bird found in the canopy layer of rainforests in Central and South America, ranging from Mexico to Argentina. Over 40 types of toucans exist; one type is the Ramphastos sulfuratus, or the keel-billed toucan. Toucans range in size from about half a foot to over two feet. Perhaps the feature that may best differentiate toucans from other birds is the vibrantly-colored bill that protrudes rather far from the face. Toucan feathers can be equally bright, manifesting in hues of red, orange, blue and yellow. The bold coloration can help toucans find mates. These birds nest in tree holes, laying 2-4 eggs at a time, 2-3 times per year. The toucan’s role in maintaining the rainforest ecosystem is spreading the seeds from the fruits that mainly comprise the diet.
