Getting lovin’: Swainson Toucan “Meaka”


The question I get asked the most about toucans are, “Are they cuddly?” well, I think this picture says it all. This is my Swainson Toucan about a year and a half old at the time. She was always gentle and cuddly and would rub her head against you kind of like a cat for attention.


Of course, all birds are different just like animals in general. Some animals could cuddle all day while others only want it on their own time. Our toucans fit these molds perfectly as Meaka was the cuddler and Fiji (same age and gender) only prefers to cuddle on her own time.
