Affectionate when hand fed. The Emerald Toucanet loves to play and interact, and they can be cuddly birds. They are intelligent and inquisitive and they learn tricks readily. 

They need a very large cage will well spaced perches and toys for hopping about. Though their beak is large it lacks the crushing power that parrots possess. 

May be a danger to smaller birds and it is recommended that Toucanets are kept away from them.

DIET: Must be very high in fresh fruits, at least 50%, and commercial low iron pelleted blends are now more widely available to supplement the diet.
