My favorite is definitely bright pink flamingos!

Makini, The Wisdom of Kongwe

Flamingos are birds that appear in The Lion Guard universe. They live in the Pride Lands and Flamingo Beach.


In The Real World

Lesser flamingos have pink feathers and curved pink or purple bills. The tips of their beaks and their flight feathers are black. They have long legs and necks. A poor diet will make the bird loose its color, and thus the opportunity to breed.

In The Lion Guard

All flamingos shown in the Lion Guard universe so far have pink feathers and thin black eyebrows.


Flamingos get their coloring from their diet of crustaceans and plankton. Female flamingos usually lay one egg, which is white in color. When the egg hatches, the chick will lack the bright plumage and curved beak of the adults.
