Birds at
Paradise

Malayan Black Hornbill

Hornbills are named for their horn shaped beaks often topped by a large hollow chamber called a casque.

This is always more prominent in the male of the species. Hornbills are the only birds known with their first two cervical vertebrae fused, which most likely helps support their top-heavy beaks.

DID YOU KNOW? Forest destruction is the main cause of their decline.
