A Greater Flamingos or Caribbean Flamingos in the Brackish Water Lagoon, Floreana Island

Flamingos feed almost entirely on crustaceans like shrimp,
and it is the shrimp that provides the pink pigment for their feathers.
The word flamingo comes from the Latin word for flame or fire.
Adult flamingos reach a height between 50-60 inches and weigh between 5-8 lbs.
