I AM A GREATER FLAMINGO
I am a Phoenicopterus ruber, a Greater Flamingo and belong to the order Phoenicopteriformes.

I belong to the Phoenicopteridae family

I can be found in shallow waters or muddy flats , using my webbed feet to stir up grub.

I live in Florida along in nice warm saline or alkaline water

I am pink in color, but my chicks are gray and white with short beaks and short legs

I am a Phoenicopterus ruber, a Greater Flamingo and belong to the order Phoenicopteriformes.
I will have a wing span of 60 inches when I am a full grown adult

I will weigh about 8.75 pounds

I will grow to be 36 to 50 inches tall.

I eat fly larvae and plankton and delicious blue-green algae

I especially enjoy feeding and breeding in mud flats.

I am a Phoenicopterus ruber, a Greater Flamingo and belong to the order Phoenicopteriformes.
I worry about my sister who was captured and no longer has access to carotenoid-rich food and has lost her beautiful pink coloration.

I protect myself by staying in large flocks or colonies and find safety in numbers.

I believe I am rarely seen alone because I am such socially enhanced creature

I know that we flamingos were once killed by the Romans, who valued our tongues as a delicacy.

I understand that my feathers are pink because I have chemicals in my system called carotenoids that react with the aquatic invertebrates and blue-green algae I eat.

I am a Phoenicopterus ruber, a Greater Flamingo and belong to the order Phoenicopteriformes.
