Pink Dinosaur #232

Pink Ibis by David Tana
31 – Eudocimus ruber – the scarlet ibis is a tropical South American bird with a brilliant scarlet color covering all of its body (with the exception of its black wig tips).  Like flamingos, it gets this color from small crustaceans it eats, as it is born grey and white, and only develops this color as it ages.  It finds them by probing soft sediments with its long, curved beak.

Huge congratulations to David for completing his month-long, 31 pink dinosaur drawings!  Thanks so much!

Also, raise a glass to ART Evolved for reaching it's 400th post!  Woot!
