Green Flamingos ❤ "Flamingo feathers obtain their wonderful rosy pink color from pigments in the organisms they eat, which is rich in alpha and beta carotenoid pigments. Carotenoids in crustaceans are frequently linked to protein molecules, and may be blue or green!!!... After being digested, the carotenoid pigments dissolve in fats and are deposited in the growing feathers, mostly becoming orange or pink"
