History [ edit ]

There are about 40 species of Toucans in the Central and South America. They are part of the Ramphastidae family. These softbill birds live in Rainforests and are extremely important for this ecosystem since they play the role of seed of tropical trees disperser.

The Toucans can be found in the canopy of the forests. They hang around near fruiting trees in small flocks of no more a dozen individuals.

Toco Toucans are the most famous among the group due to his huge beak. He has been the mascot of some company’s commercials that had great impact on the public.

He is considered common in the wild, but his price of acquisition is elevated.
