Baby flamingos are so adorable! They look like little clouds with feet. It's weird to think that when baby flamingos are born, they are without the classic pink color that often defines them. As it turns out, the pink flamingo color isn't a color they're born with, it comes from eating a certain thing: beta carotene. Beta carotene is a red-orange pigment that's found in high numbers with algae, larvae, and brine shrimp, foods that flamingos often eat within their wetland environment. That pigment is extracted from the birds' digestive system and dissolves into fat. The fats are then deposited back into their new feathers as they grow!

Pretty interesting stuff! Now, back to this adorable video of little flamingos running around -- Enjoy!
