The Grey Breasted Mountain Toucan has an unusual body as far as toucans go, as it is fairly long and drawn out. The main colors are yellow, grey, black and red, the grey part making up most of its chest area, thus the name. The most distinguishing feature, however, is the red tip on the top of its bill. Another odd feature is the red and yellow feathers coming out just under its tail feathers.
The Grey Breasted Mountain Toucan can be found in humid highland forests, such as that found in Peru and the Andes. It, unlike other birds of its kind, nests in the tops of trees instead of in a hollow tree.
The Grey Breasted Mountain Toucan eats a range of berries and larger insects, unusual for toucans as most toucans will not eat berries and only small insects.
The Grey Breasted Mountain Toucan is Near Threatened accorcing to the IUCN red list.
