Slide background

In Mundomar have a population of Toco Toucans Toucan or large (Ramphastos toco) and the largest known specimen of the family of toucans. Its natural habitat is South America.

  • /
  • Orden: Piciformes
  • /
  • Familia: Ramphastidae
  • /
  • En peligro de extinción: Amenazada (vulnerable)

Features:

It has a striking plumage with black body, white throat and a blue eye ring. The most remarkable feature is its huge yellow bill with a black spot, which despite heavy look is incredibly light as its interior is practically hollow. They usually have an average length of 63 centimeters (25 inches), of which the peak occupies about 20cm (8 inches) and reach over 500 grams.

They have two toes forward and two steps back, so that you can better grasp the branches. There is no sexual dimorphism between males and females.

Customs, food and habitat:

This species is found in the humid forests of eastern South America: Guyana, Bolivia, Paraguay, Brazil (Cerrado savanna) and northern Argentina (Misiones Forest). Unlike other species, they prefer more open spaces, such as sheets and little woodland to dense forest.

The toco toucan feeds mainly on fruit, but occasionally eat insects, reptiles and eggs of other birds.

Curiosities:

The breeding season of the toco toucan varies by region, but their reproduction cycle is annual. Looking for nesting cavities in trees often often used year after year. They usually put 2-4 eggs, which hatch in 16-20 days.

The young are born naked and blind. Its growth is quite slow and initially did not resemble an adult toucan, since its peak takes several months to fully develop. They open their eyes at 3 weeks.
