Flamingo Chick


Born: June 2013
Home: San Diego Zoo

All About Baby: There's chick lit, and then there's little chicks. The latter (pictured here) is a Caribbean flamingo chick -- one of 118 Caribbean flamingos -- being raised at the San Diego Zoo. This precious lil' pink descendant from the Miami Vice opening sequence was born the size of a tennis ball with legs -- though you won't see it here due to some serious s'mothering. A common occurrence during a flamingo's first 5 to 12 days of life in the nest.
