What do toucans eat, and were do they live? Are toucans social?
Answer 1:

Toucans are members of the Ramphastidae family. They are native to the tropical and subtropical areas of Southern Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean. They have beautiful, long multi-colored bills. Toucans are primarily fruit-eaters (frugivorous) but also will eat small prey (insects and lizards). Toucans are social - they are typically found in pairs or small flocks.
