Wink Beautiful Toucan!

Hello Everybirdie!

Okay...I know I've been off the grid for over a month and do miss you all very much! Just had too many things going on. I will be catching up vey soon but I just had to share photos of this beauty I saw at the nearby bird store yesterday. It's the first time I've ever seen a toucan offered at a store and I've always been fascinated with them. As you can see by her price tag, she's just a bit too exquisite for my household, but I shall still consider her MINE until someone with deep pockets claim her. I've even named her 'Samantha' (like Sam as in Toucan Sam)







Staff Note:
Toucans are beautiful and exotic birds.
The one pictured is a prime example!

However, the average individual does not have the space, financial means nor knowledge and experience needed to care for a toucan.
While they are beautiful, toucans are not the type bird that should be considered as a companion pet in the majority of domestic settings.

Best wishes to all in dreaming about the beautiful birds we wish we could have!

Wow! She is a beauty. Nice name selection. Froot Loops is what I always think of when I see a toucan too.

As much as I love toucans to look at, I would not have the space in my whole house to give her the space I feel she would need and I would need a Talk Toucan's forum to help me through caring for her!

As for names, even though it's a female, there's the Guinness Toucan called Arthur and I think I'd want to name her that- which is highly inappropriate!

What a beautiful bird. Not something that would be seen, ever, in a bird shop over here. If one was to be seen you could easily add another zero to that price tag and a 1 in front of the 4 would not be out of place either. You are still paying at least that price for a Blue and Gold Macaw over here.

Nothing you would ever see in a petshop over here either... I hope whoever buys her knows exactly what they're letting themselves in for as the wrong diet for these guys could be fatal as they suffer greatly from iron storage disease. Not a beginners bird!

Oh Nick she's gorgeous!!! I used to watch videos of toucans all the time, and I wanted one so bad. I still do, but there's no way I could afford it. They're so full of energy but so serene at the same time.

We've missed you around here, Nick. Poke your head in more often!

-Kristen


BTW, I still think you should get her...life can always use more color, and an exquisite taste is never a bad thing,

Wow, I had no idea people kept toucans as pets. They're so beautiful! They're definitely out of reach for my budget, too.
