Nature is a beautiful thing.

“Le mythe biblique du pêché de la connaissance est le plus profond que l’humanité ait jamais imaginé. L’euphorie des enthousiastes tient, précisément, au fait qu’ils ignorent la tragédie de la connaissance. Pourquoi ne pas le dire ? La connaissance se confond avec les ténèbres. Je renoncerais volontiers à tous les problèmes sans issue en échange d’une douce et inconsciente naïveté. L’esprit n’élève pas: il déchire.”

I hope this one doesn’t seem preachy, I just know that when times are really hard, letting someone help you is near on impossible.

Chestnut-eared Aracari
Pteroglossus castanotis (Piciformes - Ramphastidae), better known as Chestnut-eared Aracari, is an Aracari species native to central and south-eastern South America, distinctive by having yellow underparts, with a single red band across the chest. 
In general, toucans and aracaris are known for their large and showy bills. Despite its size, the bill is very light, being composed of bone struts filled with spongy tissue.
The large bill of these birds is a highly efficient thermoregulation system. Also, it allows the bird to reach deep into tree holes to access food (they eat mostly fruit and insects). The bills of females are usually smaller.
