Symbolic Classic Adoption: Great Potoo


The Toucan Rescue Ranch has rescued several Great Potoos. Major reasons for its rescue is due to deforestation.


By symbolically adopting the Great Potoo you will be directly helping with the species’ ongoing food and care. With your donation, you will receive an ADOPTION CERTIFICATE and thank you email with your tax-deductible information. The Classic Adoption pays for your adopted species costs for roughly 3-months!

Great Potoo Facts (Included in the Information Sheet):

  • Great Potoos are masters of camouflage, using the ‘cryptic pose’ to disguise as a branch or bark of a tree trunk.
  • Great Potoos are nocturnal and feed on large flying insects and occasionally bats. They fly through the night with their large mouths open using it as a net to scoop up prey.
  • Great Potoos lay up to 1-4 eggs and parents share the responsibility of incubating the eggs and feeding the chicks once they hatch.

We do not physically sell or adopt out any of the rescued wildlife in Toucan Rescue Ranch’s care. Our Adoption Program is purely symbolic and a unique way for supporters to donate to our mission and their favorite animal.
In Costa Rica, it is illegal to sell or own any native fauna. As a licensed rescue center, it is our duty to uphold the law and what it stands for. As well as being illegal in the country of Costa Rica, it is a core part of TRR’s mission to protect wildlife from the illegal pet trade – as this is something we combat every day. ADOPTION DONATIONS ARE NONREFUNDABLE.
