Pink flamingo flamboyance

Pink flamingo flamboyance

Description

Flamingo’s get their color from the food they eat. The food contains carotenoids which causes their feathers to turn pink or red. The better the nutrition value, the deeper the color. They eat red shrimp, who in their turn eat red algae. These algae are able to manufacture pigments by themselves. These flamingo’s are held in captivity. In parks they tend to have less color than in the wild, because they aren’t fed the food they obtain in the wild.
