A toucan weighs a little over 1 pound, approximately 20 ounces. The bird grows to about 25 inches and their bills alone reach up to 7.5 inches in length.

Toucans are found throughout the tropical forests of South America and are best known for their colorful and disproportionately large bills. These birds live for up to 20 years in small flocks of around six individuals. Their bills are used mostly for finding and consuming food, such as fruit and insects. However, toucans have unique mating rituals during which they use their bills. During courtship, both male and female toucans use their bills to toss bits of fruit to each other.
