Tropical rainforests with mainly trees are the essential homes for toco toucans. With a low ability to fly, they hop between tree branches for their needs. However, the trees are being destroyed through logging and other ways. With fewer trees, carbon dioxide levels increase, causing global warming. Every one hundred years, the forest will become closer to a dry savanna and the toco toucan will need some special adaptations to survive in it.
To exist in a dry savanna, the toco toucan would make a safe underground home. Also, they evolve a dry grass colored neck to blend in with the savanna’s tarnished grass. A heat and water proof covering would protect them from the extreme climatic conditions. Overtime, it would develop a better ability to fly that helps them easily find destinations with more needs. Finally, the toco toucan’s flat feet would assist in landing it smoothly on the ground.
