     The place the toucan calls home is


South & Central America.


The toucan also lives in the

CHAPTER 2-  Toucan's Size/Invertabrate or Vertebrate


     A full grown toucan


weighs a less than a pound!


Those birds are slightly LESS


than 2 feet long. From head


to toe, they are about 20


inches tall! So, these birds are


lightweight and small!



     These beautiful birds are also


vertabrates (they have a backbone).      


Funfact, all birds are vertabrates.

     Toucans are omnivores (animals  


that eat both plants and animals). They


will eat bird eggs, insects, fruit, reptiles,


rodents, and surprisingly, other birds of


different species. Toucan's eat a lot of


items that they call food!
