Caribbean Twins from aruba! These elegant pink flamingos were strolling around the beach beside us!

When I was a child, we would go to the San Diego Zoo very often. The first thing we would see, when we walked in, was the flamingos and their beautiful grey babies. It became a sort of tradition and they remind me of good times growing up ♥ Vivayne

Flamingos aren't born pink. They get their color from the Brine shrimp they eat. Brine shrimp have a organic compound called beta carotene that is responsible for turning the feathers of the flamingo pink. It takes a couple years from a young flamingos to change from white to pink. AND THERE YOU GO!
