On the 19th of February we lost our beautiful Toucan Sam, who lived seven years with us. An opossum killed him. He sneaked inside at night, entering through a small hole. We have learned from this sad story and built in the same place two cages. One will be Tuki’s new home, a toucan of the same species; the other for another Toucan that just arrived from Cochabamba.
The new galvanized tubes and mesh will make these enclosures longer lasting than their wooden predecessors. The new double, joint enclosure has a single access gate that facilitates feeding.
