The animal I’m choosing is toucan. A toucan is a bird that can fly. It’s beak is colorful. The colors are yellow, black, orange and a little bit of purple and red. The toucan’s beak is also big. It uses it to protect itself. Toucans are lazy. They like to stay in trees with fruit and don’t fly much. They often hop from trees to trees. They live in the canopy layer of the tropical rainforest. They eat fruits and other things. Their predators are big cats and big birds. A million years later, the entire earth is covered by rainforest. Then people start to live in tree houses and grow coconuts and other fruits. Because the fruits people are growing, toucans now live in the understory layer. Toucans can fly faster now because there are more predators.
