The Keel-Billed Toucan is a bird that got its name from its oversized, but lightweight beak. Their scientific name is Ramphastos sulfuratus. You can find this bird in the South American tropical rainforests. They fly from tree to tree, but their wings are large and heavy, making it hard for them to fly far distances. The animals are not near extinction, but sometimes they are hunted. Some people in South and Central America believe that they are evil. The future Keel-Billed Toucan will be called the King Toucan because it would be bigger. Its future habitat would be flooded, so it needs to adapt. Rainfall may make rivers overflow. Because it would be wet, the toucans would have to change their diet to rainforest fish. They would have longer and stronger bills, sharper talons, and waterproof feathers. The wings would be lighter. It would jump on floating pieces of moss.
