Toucan is one of the most expensive bird species in the world and can be found in America, Mexico, the Caribbean and other places. There are almost 40 kinds of Toucan in the world. According to the variety and color, each Toucan costs 50000-100000 US dollars.
The most remarkable feature of Toucan is its huge and gorgeous beak. Among them, the male Toucan has the largest beak, with a body length of 79cm and a beak length of nearly 23cm. Toucan is frequently seen in various works of human beings, which seems to be the traditional symbol of tropical forest in America. In the Neotropics, where birds are abundant, perhaps only hummingbirds attract artists’ attention.
The beak of the toucan is actually very light, far less heavy than it looks. Because it is composed of spongy body, outside is a thin layer of horny sheath, inside is hollow, containing air, but there are many thin bone support rods staggered; Despite this internal reinforcement, the beak is fragile and sometimes broken.
