I've discovered a toucan group in Yahoo Groups! I would have discovered it sooner, had I poked more around Emerald Forest's homepage rather than just going straight to the bird info. *facepalm* The list is pretty active, too, so that's a good. I'll get to pick some brains, maybe, before we make a decision. I've already found out that, yes, fruit can be frozen.
I've also decided that the aracari I like best is the Ivory Billed Aracari. LOOK AT THE COLORS. And they're all cute and little! Seriously, they weigh five ounces. That's, like...a cheeseburger. *dies* And they're sexually dimorphic (which means males and females actually look different--the male has a black head and the female has a brown head, in this case). The price on them isn't outrageous, either... Erm, at least, it's not outrageous for an aracari. They're not the least expensive, but they're not the most expensive.
I have a deep and burning need to visit Emerald Forest, y'all.
In other news, we've decided not to buy the airplane. We really can't justify the expense. A toucan, though... The Hubby has eleven days off in a row next month for the Moab Jeep Safari--which we're not even sure we're going to go to, because it's early and the Willys doesn't like snow. Like, at all. San Diego is looking GOOD...
