Contact Toucans

Toucans are birds with gigantic bills that inhabit subtropical areas.

They are gentle and amiable birds who will fly to you and land on your arm or shoulder if you are holding food.

Although many people are startled at first, once you get used to it,

you’ll feel like you want to take one home with you!

This is a rare opportunity to see toucans up close.

You should certainly try to get one to land on your arm!

If you place your feet in the tub and stay still, you’ll feel their tiny mouths poking at your feet and making them clean!

* Fish may not approach depending on the temperature of the air or water and the hours of operation of this corner may change or be canceled.

* We ask that our guests with thin skin, small children, or open or healing wounds refrain from entry.
