Toco Toucan
Toco Toucan

Toucans are one of those instantly recognisable animals, thanks to their huge bright-coloured bill, which they use to reach for fruit at the end of branches that are too thin to support the bird's body weight. They live almost exclusively in the Amazon basin, in South America. The image shows a Toco Toucan (Ramphastos toco), one of the largest species of toucan.

Los tucanes son una de esas especies de animales que todo el mundo reconoce de inmediato, gracias a su enorme pico de colores brillantes, que usan para coger fruta de ramas demasiado delgadas para aguantar su peso. Su habitat casi exclusivo es la cuenca amazónica, en Sur America. La imagen muestra a un Tucan Toco (Ramphastos toco) una de las especies mas grandes.
