Toco toucans have a surprising way of protecting themselves from predators. These birds have multicolored feathers and big, reddish-orange beaks that should make them easy to spot--or so you would think. The brilliant colors actually provide the perfect camouflage among the bright foliage of the tropical rain forest. The toucans can stay safe by hiding in plain sight! Packed with fascinating facts and photos that will test children's detective skills, this book will engage emergent readers as they learn how toco toucans are adapted for survival. A section of the book highlights other rain-forest birds that are camouflaged to look like the plants in their environment.

Toco Toucans

The naturally camouflaged animals found in the Disappearing Acts series include such usual suspects as katydids and tree frogs. But in this volume, it’s the toco toucan who is revealed to be adept at vanishing into its surroundings, despite its bright beak and feathers. The unusually fine photographs, which often stretch across both horizontally oriented pages, do a great job of wowing readers right off the bat. With black feathers that look like shadow, blue eyes that look like slivers of sky, and a red-orange beak that looks like fruit, the toucan blends into its treetop environment with impressive ease…. A page titled “More Disappearing Acts” brings the topic back around by showing three other camouflaged birds. A visual glossary, index, and some further reading suggestions close out this colorful study.
