Rebecca Zavala,1st Period,Toco Tucan

  1. 1. Toco Toucan By: Rebecca Zavala
  2. 2. Statistics: <ul><li>Has a lifespan of up to 20 years. </li></ul><ul><li>Body size of 25 in. </li></ul><ul><li>Bill size of 7.5 in. </li></ul><ul><li>Weighs about 20 oz. (550 g.) </li></ul><ul><li>Lays from 2 to 4 white eggs at a time. </li></ul><ul><li>It takes about 17 to 20 days for them to hatch. </li></ul><ul><li>They will leave the nest at 8 or 9 weeks old. </li></ul><ul><li>Family: Ramphastidae </li></ul><ul><li>Scientific name: Ramphastos Sulfuratus. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Habitat Range <ul><li>The toco toucan is mostly found in South America’s tropical forests but is recognized everywhere. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Fun Facts <ul><li>The beak of the toucan is fairly light but yet very strong. </li></ul><ul><li>Toucans are known to be one of the noisiest jungle birds creating harsh croaks, yelps, mews, rattles, and many other kinds of sounds. </li></ul><ul><li>Toco Toucans live in small flocks of about 6 birds. </li></ul><ul><li>Their bright colors actually provide camouflage in the light of the rainforest canopy. </li></ul><ul><li>Toucans are playful and often jump together from tree to tree while fencing with their bills. </li></ul><ul><li>Toucans bathe high in the trees and not at ground level like most birds do. To do such thing they use pools of rainwater found in the hollows of branches and tree trunks. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Food Source <ul><li>The toco toucan feeds mainly on berries, fruit and seeds. </li></ul><ul><li>The toco toucan is an omnivore so it also eats insects such as spiders and will occasionally eat small lizards and snakes. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Breeding <ul><li>The toco tucan nests in a healthy living tree in a hole formed by decaying wood. Although sometimes the whole may come out being to small the toco tucan will remove the soft surrounding wood remaining around the hole with its beak since it cannot make its own hole in a healthy tree. </li></ul><ul><li>Nests are not lined and seeds are frequently left in the hole to form a bed for the eggs. Once the eggs are laid both parents take turns incubating them. </li></ul><ul><li>Once they hatch the young are blind and naked and are fed by both parents. </li></ul>
