toucan is the Brazilian symbol.
There are four species in Iguaçu park.Their long beaks are

and spongy that the birds are
back heavy and therefore,
The toucans eat fruit, eggs,
chicks and leaves
of the amba tree.
|In Iguaçu Park you'll see many other||colourful birds:parrots, woodpeckers,||parakeets, ,hummingbirds|
well as lizards, racoons,
caiman and armadillos.
