Rhinoceros Hornbill

Rhinoceros Hornbill is a type of bird Friend. Her design was released for JAZA's "Hornbill Day" on March 1st alongside Great Hornbill.

Appearance

She has short black hair and a large red yellow and white beak with casque on her head. Her blue eyes along with a red ring she wears as a necklace indicate towards her being based on a female animal, which is arguably quite rare among friends. She wears a black t-shirt and long black fingerless gloves. She wears white hot pants, a white pantyhose and pale yellow and white shoes.

In Real Life

The rhinoceros hornbill (Buceros rhinoceros) is one of the largest hornbills, adults being approximately the size of a swan, long and weighing . In captivity it can live for up to 90 years. It is found in lowland and montane, tropical and subtropical climates and in mountain rain forests up to 1, 400 metres altitude in Borneo, Sumatra, Java, the Malay Peninsula, Singapore, and southern Thailand.

This bird has a mainly white beak and casque, but there are orange places here and there. The tip of the casque curves markedly upward. The bird has white underparts, especially to the tail. The courtship and bonding of these birds are critical, as the female must trust the male to provide her with everything when she is incubating and raising chicks. These hornbills make their nests inside tree trunks, and the female stays inside with the eggs and then with the chicks, while the male brings them food. After the eggs are laid, the male collects mud, and the pair pack that mud, along with food and feces, to wall up the entrance to the tree cavity. They leave a very small hole, just large enough for the male to feed the female, and later the chicks, and for the female to defecate through the hole. Once the chicks are fully feathered and old enough to leave the nest, the parents chip away the dry mud to let the chicks out. The rhinoceros hornbill eats fruit, insects, small reptiles, rodents, and smaller birds.
