The Keel-Billed Toucan has a bill that is approximately one third of its body length. This member of the toucan family is also known as the rainbow billed toucan, and is nicknamed that due to the vibrant colors of red, green, and orange on its beak along with black and yellow feathers. It has one of the most colorful beaks in the world.
The Keel-Billed Toucan roosts in holes in trees in the canopies of tropical, subtropical, and lowland rainforests, up to altitudes of 6,200 ft. With several toucans in roosting in one hole, there is often limited spaces so they have adapted to sleep with their beaks and tails under their bodies.
