The Green Aracari's are friendly and affectionate, making them a popular pet bird. They are full of personality. They enjoy playing games, such as peek-a-boo, and can be loving toward their owners. They tend to not be one-person birds but rather bond with the entire family. Green aracaris are interactive, playful and thoroughly enjoy being a part of the family, which makes them popular as pets. They are very tame, particularly when hand fed, and are often recommended as a "starter" toucan species.  At 12–16 inches long and weighing 110–160 grams (3.9–5.7 oz.), it is the smallest aracari in its range and among the smallest members of the toucan family.  The species is named for the green feathers covering its back. Males' crowns are black, while females' are reddish-brown.  In captivity, they are the most popular as a tame hand-fed pet. They require a large cage and toys to prevent boredom due to their active nature, and a high-fruit/low iron diet. When all these requirements are met, they are an affectionate companion for many years
