Hey! Toucans are birds. They live in tropical forests now. But over time, due to global warming, the forest will be a desert. Here are some of the adaptations of toucans for the desert life.
Eyes:
Toucans today have small, beady eyes for protection. In future, it’ll have sharper and bigger eyes to spot their prey in the sand.
Beak:
The future toucan will have a narrower beak to catch insects since it will lose its habit of eating fruits because of the habitat.
feet&claws:
Instead of tropical trees,their nests are in cactuses of desert. They will have longer feet and sharper claws to take the prickles off and dig into sand.
Brain:
Lots of owls live in the desert who prey on toucan. The toucans will have a bigger brain to escape.
Feathers:
They’ll have sparse feathers to cool off, and they’ll be brown for camouflage.
