Excerpt from Janis Cox’ Creative Tuesdays:
So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good (Genesis 1:21, NIV).
The prompt from Creative Tuesdays for this week was “Twitters” – and I know Michael expects little tiny birds. But my thoughts and heart went to the colourful toucan. I couldn’t resist trying to paint him. Then I became interested in where he lives, what he eats, why he has such a large beak. So here is what I found out.
Certainly God created each part of the toucan for a purpose.
The large beak has been found to be a type of thermal radiator (it cools the toucan).
