If in the far future coastal rainforests turned to marshes, these images depict how toucans would adapt to their new habitat. Toucans’ original, bright colors would make it difficult for them to blend into the sand and reeds that they would have to live in, so in the future, they would instead have more muted colors. This would help them camouflage, making it easier to catch prey and avoid predators. As toucans are used to gripping to tree branches in the rainforest, they would also gain longer, three-toed feet in their new habitat. This would help them walk through marshes and sand. In conclusion, toucans would change drastically if their home were to turn to a marsh in 1000 years or more.
