World of letters
French architect and artist Emmanuel Moro has been living in Japan for many years, where he has opened its own company.

How to grow tukan
We present to your attention a video structure for the cultivation of a nosed bird-tukan from the egg to an adult state. As you can notice, the chicks in Tukanans are born blind, bare and completely helpless. They open their eyes only after three weeks, and the first plumage occurs in about a month. Therefore, in the wild in the first two or three months of life, they at all do not leave the nest. When Tucanians live in captivity, they love to communicate with a person (and in general behave like cats!) However, imitate human speech are not capable. But in the jungle they not only love to sing, but also perfectly parody the voices of other feathered fellow. Tukanans are found in rainforest from South Mexico to Northern Argentina.
