I have always liked toucans, for their brightly colored beaks and also because they are found in my homecountry Peru, as well as many other Central and South American countries.

Who can, who can, 

Who can catch a toucan? 

Lou can, Lou can, 

Lou can catch a toucan. 

Jan can, Jan can, 

Jan can catch a toucan. 

Sue can, Sue can, 

Sue can catch a toucan. 

One can, two can, 

Three can catch a toucan. 

Lou can, and Sue can, 

Jan can catch a toucan.

National Geographic toucan video!

Toucans are a well known rainforest animal and they are one of the noisiest too, as they can be easily heard from many hundreds of metres away!

Toucans have a black body, white neck and chest and a striking plumage. What distinguishes them though is their long and colorful beak, which can grow up to 18 cm in length and have a color ranging from yellow-orange to reddish orange.


The Toucan

Tell me who can
Catch a toucan?
Lou can.

Just how few can
Ride the toucan?
Two can.

What kind of goo can
Stick you to the toucan?
Glue can.

Who can write some
More about the toucan?
You can!

Toucans and famous brands!

Toucans seem to be liked by advertising companies too, as a toucan features in famous American brands, like Kellong’s Fruit Loops and the Irish Guiness Beer!

Toucan food

Toucans eat mainly fruits, nuts and berries, but also insects and small lizards. During the mating season toucans like to play catch by tossing berries from one to the other with their beaks. 

Toucan inspirations!

These birds seem to have inspired many, not only me, as one can find songs and poems, as well as a big selection of goods, like stuffed animals, mobiles, mugs, mouse pads. T-shirts, jewelry, wood  and ceramic ornaments!
