Fact of the Day: Toucan Flight

Due to some rather small wings, toucans can't fly very well. Because of this, they can only travel short distances at a time.

Every time I see a toucan I think of that cereal Fruit Loops.

But hey, they've got that lucrative Froot Loops endorsement deal so they can afford to take a plane.

I had a friend who had one of these as a pet, and it's true; they don't fly well.
