Did you know that:
- Turacos are generally poor fliers, tending to move from tree to tree by gliding or with a few fast wing beats. Move short distances with a series of short hops, or by running along tree branches.
- Turacos' plumage has two pigments unique to the entire bird world: turacine (a red colour) and turacoverdin (a green colour).
