The pink flamingo
Emblem of the Camargue, the pink flamingo owes its colour partly to the carotene pigments contained in its food (crustaceans, algae and invertebrates). This species moves around the Mediterranean but it is in the Camargue that there is the largest population, single reproduction island. In the spring, they nest in the colony, the male and the female incubate in turn the only egg deposited in a mud nest. Gray at birth, he will fly when he is around 10 weeks old and will turn pink around 3 years old.
