The Famous Toucan Bill

Certainly, the most famous feature toucans have is their long, colorful, and thick bills. Some species even have bills longer than their bodies. Toucans use those bills to reach fruit and berries from thin branches. Their bills are hollow but extremely tough, allowing toucans to defend themselves from predators. 
Those bills also have an important role in nature.
