About the Red-breasted Toucan

Also known as: Green-billed Toucan
The red-breasted Toucan is a small species of toucan found in parts of Brazil, Paraguay, and Argentina. Its range is further south than any other toucan.

Red-breasted Toucans have a colorful appearance, with a red lower breast and abdomen, a yellow-orange chest, iridescent black back, bright blue feet, and green bill and eye. This colorful bird is also sometimes known as the Green-billed Toucan.

Red-breasted Toucans feed mainly on fruit, nuts, and some small animal prey. They have a relatively short beak for a toucan, measuring just about 4 inches long.
