The Wildlife Conservation Society's Bronx Zoo released photos on Wednesday of a beautiful Caribbean flamingo hatchling taking its very first steps!
The little chick is seen getting some help from its mother outside the zoo's Aquatic Birds exhibit.
If you notice, mother and child are different colors. As the Wildlife Conservation Society explains, "Flamingos are hatched with white downy plumage but develop trademark pink coloration from pigments in the algae, crustaceans, and other invertebrates that make up their diet."
In June, the Bronx Zoo celebrated the debut of two baby lemurs, a Coquerel’s sifaka and a collared lemur.
