Toucans are brightly colored and have long bills. There are about 40 different species of toucans.
The seven inch bill of the toucan is useful in helping the bird reach different fruits, insects, or other tasty treats that may otherwise be difficult to reach. One of the mating rituals of the toucans involves a food toss as the male and female throw bits of fruit to each other and catch them in their beaks.
A couple of the larger toucans in the aviary kept following us wherever we went and aggressively shooing away other birds. It started to get a little creepy. Eventually we noticed that we were wearing the same color jacket that all of the caretakers wore. The toucans thought we had come in to feed them.
