    Gorgeous! I looked into getting a toucan once, but quickly realized I didn't have room.

    What about an aracari or toucanet? They're just smaller versions

    Sadly, not small enough. At the moment I haven't got room for any birds, but toucanets are lovely and on my eventual wishlist.

    This thread is a tiny bit old, but I feel it is necessary to express my astonishment that someone actually has a pet hornbill. I'd heard of toucans and aracaris as pets, but never hornbills. That's seriously awesome!

    I don't have any birds, but I'm inheriting an Amazon parrot within a decade, so I've been spending a lot of time learning to care for birds. By the time he's in my care, I'll be new to that whole "living independently" thing, so becoming an adult will be extra stressful in my situation. At least I know what's happening ahead of time, though!

    A buddy has 3 toucans and really likes them. My sulfur crested is more than enough bird for me.
