Additional Information
A toucan’s beak grows to a length of up to 20 cm and is four times larger than its head. Although it looks very heavy, it is actually very light since it is hollow inside. When it is very hot, the bird sends blood into the fine veins in the beak where it cools down before flowing back into the body.

Fun Fact
