Animals in pink: the most unexpected beauty of nature
Did you just think of a flamingo? Well, we will show you something really exotic.
Do you know that the color pink is exceptionally rare in nature? That is why most pink animals are pink due to genetics or just albinos. However, there are always some exceptions.
Most people think that flamingos are pink but these birds are actually white! The pink coloring of their feathers comes from carotenoids in their food and can range from pale rose to vivid orange.
Our robins have orange breasts, but Australian ones are pink-breasted.
The rosefinch is native to Europe. Its dusty pink coloring reminds us of dried rose petals. Gorgeous.
Just like flamingos, these pink birds get their amazing coloring from their diet. However, the intensity of the color of their feathers also depends on their age.
Axolotls, also known as salamanders, are native to sunny Mexico. Pink species are considered rare as axolotl's skin is usually green or gray.
Just like salamanders, katydids are normally green or brown, but these species ended up a vivid pink. Sadly, pink insects can't camouflage as well as their "normal" friends.

The head and shoulders of male species are bright pink or violet, while females are mostly brown.
So yes, reptiles can be pink too. Like most animals, snakes get in on the pink due a genetic mutation.
The pink dolphin is an extremely rare mammal. It is native to Asia and sometimes found in Amazon river.
