Eyes Image (11k)Keel-Billed Toucan

Toucans swallow whole fruit
and then spit out the seeds
unharmed. They feed and then
fly off, often dropping seeds
at great distances from the
plant where they found them.
This spreads the seeds and
increases the chances that
the seeds will find a good
place to grow.
