Di̇scover #BrazilianWildlife with the Toco Toucan.
The Toco toucan is the largest and probably best-known species in the toucan family. They weigh around 500-800 g. Their colourful and extremely large bill accounts for nearly half of their body length, of up to 65 cm (25 inches).
Toco toucans are omnivores, feeding mainly on fruits, berries, nuts, insects, frogs, small reptiles, small birds, and bird’s eggs. In the wild their lifespan is 18–26 years and they are typically found in woodlands, grasslands, savannas and other open areas with scattered trees.
#VisitBrazil and spot toucans at the Iguazu Falls – one of the new 7 wonders of nature – the Pantanal – the world's largest tropical wetland area – and the tropical savanna of the Cerrado, in the heart of Brazil.
