Taken at River Safari of Singapore.
These birds are not considered powerful flyers as they chiefly swoop from one branch to a nearby one, in dense forest foliage.
Despite having a large beak, toucans do not have to bear any significant weight owing to a light, somewhat honeycombed structure. Moreover, the beak is made of a light protein called keratin, the same stuff that makes up our nails.
