My first drawing is of a toucan. A toucan has a long and colorful bill and black feathers. The toucan lives in the rainforest and eats nuts, berries, and sometimes insects (Sartore). Their predators are forest eagles, hawks, and owls (“Toucan”). My second drawing is of an adapted toucan. The “Sultu Mea” (Jungle Duck). Millions of years after the present day, it rained so much that the rainforest flooded with just some of the top of the trees poking out of the surface of the water. The Sultu Mea has adapted to the change in its environment and has grown a narrower beak so it can catch fish since the nuts and berries got washed out in the sea. Also, it has gained webbed feet and waterproof feathers so that it could swim better.
