25 Awesome Pink Animals

Pink Animals

We can always be surprised by animals. This time I picked some pink ones that are not photo manipulated. The pictures are all real, even if some of them seem strange.

Of course, some of them are well known by all, like the pink flamingos. Flamingos are pink or orange or white depending on what they eat. flamingo's diet primarily consists of aquatic organisms, such as shrimp and algae, high in pigments called carotenoids. Carotenoids are the same pigments that cause shrimp to turn from gray to pink when they're boiled and are essential to maintaining the flamingo's color.

If flamingos are pink due to their diet, some other animals have the same color but for different reasons like camouflage or others.. The fact is they are strangely beautiful.
