The Largest of the Toucans Has an EPIC Bill

- This is Oshi, a toco toucan, the largest and most recognizable of the toucan family. They are found throughout Southern and Central America. While their habitat is extensive, their population has continued to decline over the last decade. Their appearance is striking, with its iconic bill that covers almost 50% of its body surface area. It looks heavy but is actually rather light. They use their bill to pluck out of reach fruits from trees. Toco toucans are considered extremely gregarious and social birds, living in flocks. The pet trade and the destruction of their rainforests are the main cause for decreasing population. This is the toco toucan.
