Description The paper foliage accurately replicates the minimalist school of Victorian taxidermy. Toucans are members of the family Ramphastidae of near passerine birds from the Neotropics. They are brightly marked and have large bills. They make their nests in tree hollows and holes excavated by other animals such as woodpeckers; the toucan bill has very limited use as an excavation tool. They sometimes fence with their bills and wrestle, which scientists hypothesize they do to establish dominance hierarchies.
