Yesterday I posted a photo of a real toucan, so today I will complement it with a photo of toucans in yet another of the murals at the Plaza Conchal shopping center in the middle of Tamarindo.
This painting illustrates a toucan in flight and gives me a chance to talk about their long beak. It looks too large for the toucan to fly. Toucan beaks are mostly hollow, however, and are very light.
Toucans are popular, so it is no surprise that the shopping center would include them in their wildlife murals. Many businesses include include photos or drawings of toucans as part of their advertising brochures or website illustrations.
