The Green Aracari, Pteroglossus viridis, is a toucan, a near-passerine bird found in the lowland forests of northern South America, in the northeast Amazon Basin, the Guianas and the eastern Orinoco River drainage of Venezuela. At 34 cm. (13.5 in.) from bill tip to tail tip, it is the smallest Aracari.

Its diet consists mostly of fruit, including the fruits of Cecropia trees and the palm Oenocarpus bacaba.

Breeding occurs from February to June. It nests in tree cavities, producing 2-4 white eggs.

In captivity it is the most frequently bred aracari and member of the toucan family and is the most popular as a tame hand fed pet. They are smart, playful, cuddly, and fun. They require a large cage due to their active nature, and a high fruit diet. The cage also requires toys to prevent boredom. When all these requirements are met the potential owner is rewarded with a loving companion bird for many years.
