Pink Flamingo


Did you know...The flamingo is a white bird that turns pink from the food it eats?
The flamingo's characteristic pink colouring is caused by the Beta carotene in their diet.
The source of this varies by species, but shrimp and blue-green algae are common sources;
zoo-fed flamingos may be given food with the additive canthaxanthin, which is often also
given to farmed salmon to make their meat pink. Some wild flamingoes are such a dark pink
they are almost red in color.
