Ramphastos Sulfuratus

#Rainbow Toucan

The Keel-Billed Toucan is also sometimes called the Rainbow-Billed Toucan, because of its rainbow-coloured beak. This beak can grow to nearly 20cm long, making it one third the length of the bird itself. Their way of conserving space whilst they sleep is to tuck their beaks under their bodies.

“Ruffled” is a recent interactive artwork in which “living” portraits of birds are reinvented by using technology. Each “Ruffled” has been designed with its own particular mannerisms and beauty. Some birds are very expressive, while others tend to have a mora subtle behavior.
