The Toco is probably the best known toucan family. The Toco toucan is found throughout central and eastern South America. The Toco Toucan is the only toucan that does not occur exclusively in forest.  It is quite common in the Pantanal. The colourful beak of the Toco Toucan measures almost 20 cm (8 in) and its full body about 64 cm (25 inches). The large beak has a narrow tongue used for eating small fruits and insects off trees.
