Agouti and Toucan Feeding Time

Azare’s agoutis are large rodents found in the rainforests and savannahs of Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina. They are known as jungle gardeners as they often bury nuts and seeds and forget where they put them, thereby helping new plants to grow. They are one of the very few animals that can open a brazil nut due to their strength and exceptionally sharp teeth.

As for the Toucans … come and see!
