Flamingos are probably the prettiest birds but also the most astonishing.
Let's give you the lowdown... When it comes to flamingos perfect pink glow- maybe they're born with it, maybe it's red algae. See, they actually eat this algae that gives them that pink coloration, they're usually born white.
An amazing 4-5 feet tall but only 4-8 lbs. Practically a mini human.. except the fact that they weigh as much as a laptop computer. They can also live pretty long, up to 50 years (in captivity) and 30 years in the wild.
We delivered an homage to this fancy bird for Spring 16, so check it out!
