Toucans are birds that live in the tropical forests of Central and South America. They are brightly colored and have enormous beaks.

Toucans primarily eat fruit, but will occasionally eat insects and other small prey.

Toucans do not migrate.

Toucan Sam is the mascot of Kellogg's Fruit Loops cereal.

The Mongabay Kids site (kids.mongabay.com) aims to help children learn about rainforests and the environment. This site is still under development and I am working to add additional content as time permits. If you have comments or are interested in submitting educational content for the site, please feel free to contact me.

The site is available in many different languages, including Portuguese, Chinese, French, Spanish, Japanese, and German.
