The Keel-Billed Toucan is a rainforest bird. It has a large, colorful beak to eat fruits and a black and yellow-white body. While its features help it survive today, how will it survive in the future? Our world is changing and our planet is warming up. I think in the future, the rainforest will dry up and become a desert. To survive in these desert conditions, the Keel-Billed Toucan will need to adapt in a few ways. I have named my future animal the Dark Desert Toucan. It has a thinner layer of feathers for the heat, a smaller thinner beak to eat bugs and get water from cacti, and will be most active at night. It will be most active at night because it can stay cool. It's dark coat will help it camouflage at night too. This is how the Dark Desert Toucan will survive in the future.
