During our recent horse internship at Establos San Rafael in Costa Rica we met Toulouse the Toucan. He was rescued by the family as a baby and now enjoys eating papaya and nibbling on human fingers. One of my aims for Costa Rica was to see a toucan so it was an amazing experience to see one close up. We even got to see a toucan tongue! It’s long, pale and narrow with frayed edges and almost looks like a feather.
Luckily enough we also saw wild toucans in the trees around the farm. What beautiful birds.
