The keel billed toucan is also known as the rainbow billed toucan because of the colorful bill that the keel billed toucan has. The keel billed toucan’s bill can reach lengths of nearly 20cm long and is around one-third of the length of the keel billed toucan’s body.

The keel billed toucan’s bill is one of the most colorful beaks in the bird world, and although it is more a green color than anything else, the keel billed toucan’s bill can be a mixture of green, red, yellow and orange in color.
