The Toucan has a long colourful bill with a black and white body. The males and females are the same colour. They can grow up to 20 inches or 50 centimetres long. Their legs are rather short but they are very strong with large scales.
The habitat of a toucan is the tropical and subtropical rainforest, as they need forest-like green climate conditions to thrive in. Toucans make their homes in the trees of the canopy layer. They sleep in holes that are in trees. If they don’t fit they turn themselves into a feathery ball to make their body smaller.
