Red-Billed Toucan Parrots
Red-Billed Toucan Parrots, Red Bill Toucan (Ramphastos tucans) is the third largest of the black
toucans, and nearly identical in size to the Swainson’s toucan. It is a common species of Colombia,
Venezuela, Guyana, and Surinam, and is not to be confused with the Couvier’s toucan(R. tucans
courier) a subspecies. The Red Bill was not seen in the U.S. until 1983 when it was first imported.
The first Red Bill was bred in captivity in 1984 by Jerry Jennings but has bred only moderately well
since, and the numbers are limited.
The Red Bill toucan is an active, curious bird that makes a great addition to the toucan breeder’s
collection. It is robust and hardy and makes both an excellent display bird for zoos and a wonderful
pet. It has a distinctive voice that truly brings the “sounds of the rainforest” to the garden aviary.
First captive breeding May 30, 1984; Jerry Jennings.
CITES status: Appendix II
Toucan Care
If you are interested in purchasing a toucan as a pet, we highly recommend reading up before
buying. Toucans are exotic animals that require special attention when considering their diet,
housing, and compatibility with other animals. Please review this page to familiarize yourself with
toucans and what it takes to be a successful toucan owner.
Toucan Get Along?
Yes, depending on the circumstances. There are several places you may visit, where you can see
several species of toucans together mixing with other types of birds in free-flight aviaries. Most
notable of these facilities are the Matsue Vogel Park in Japan and the Dallas World Aquarium in
Dallas, Texas.
The average toucan owner is likely to have only one toucan and maybe a couple of other pet birds at
home. If all the birds in the home are wing clipped and unable to fly, then free-flying interactive
birds are not possible.
Nevertheless, toucans can and will get along with other birds if properly trained and this training is
best accomplished with young birds. Toucans will sit peaceably next to other birds on perch stands
and in adjacent cages. On occasion, some minor conflicts may arise, but training will resolve this
issue. Large parrots such as macaws are potentially hazardous to other birds if they get close, so if
toucans are mixing with macaws, be certain the macaws will not attempt to bite the toucan. A
macaw bite can quickly remove the toes and legs of other birds as well as damage beaks.
Whenever mixing birds together whether it is toucans with toucans or toucans
( with parrots, or parrots with parrots, always
plan to spend considerable time observing the birds from a distance to be certain there will be no aggression. If aggression
occurs, it is possible to eliminate it with training. Everything is possible with patience and
