Aceros corrugatus (Wrinkled Hornbill)

Wikipedia Abstract

The wrinkled hornbill or Sunda wrinkled hornbill (Aceros corrugatus) is a medium-large hornbill which is found in forest in the Thai-Malay Peninsula, Sumatra and Borneo. It has sometimes been placed in the genus Rhyticeros together with most other species generally placed in Aceros. This is a forest species and eats mainly fruit, such as figs, although it will also eat small animals such as frogs and insects. Wrinkled hornbills do not drink, but get the water they need from their food. Their call is a harsh "Kak-kak," or a deep "Row-wow" which can be heard for miles.
