The flamingo is the national animal of the Bahamas. Flamingos are filter feeders – they use their feet to stir up the water, then scoop it up with their beaks, which are designed to strain animals out of the mud. They eat small crustaceans, plankton, tiny fish and fly larvae. The shrimp-like crustaceans help to give flamingos their pink colour.
