Pink or White???

G'morning :)
The question of the day...
Are flamingo's really pink???
Well, they're actually white...

Courtesy of Ask.com:
"Yes, flamingos are born white but because they love eating shrimp all the time, over time the white flamingos aquire a pinkish color from all the shrimp. Once the flamingo is fully an adult it should be almost completly light to medium pink."

Sooo, I think that my lil flamingo went a lil overboard eating those shrimps ;)
