Flamingos are among the oldest bird groups in the world. In their present form flamingos have lived on earth for over 30 million years. There are numerous subspecies among the flamingos - but they all are somehow very similar. They all share the well-known and characteristic thin, long legs, a nice long neck and the great pink plumage. Standing upright, flamingos are up to 155 cm tall due to their long legs. They are especially associated with certain regions, such as the Camargue or Florida.
Algae turn you pink
At least that goes for flamingos. That is how they get their famous colour. The pink colour of their plumage arises from the intake of carotenoids, which flamingos absorb with their food and are mainly contained in planktonic algae.
