Oklahoma City Zoo Hatchlings Run With Full Flamingo Flock For First Time

After spending three months bonding with their family group, flamingo hatchlings living at the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden ran free with their flock for the first time on Monday, November 4.

The flock lives at the Zoo’s Island Life habitat, the zoo said in this Facebook post. The gray hatchlings will acquire their pink tone in about a year due to a diet high in beta carotene.
