A sad moment for flamingos



Hi, everybody.  Fluta here.  

Can you sit down for a moment?  I have some sad news.

Greater, the world's oldest flamingo, has passed away.  Greater was 83 years old and lived a wonderful life in Australia, but due to old age and poor health, they had to let the beautiful flamingo go.

Below is a link to the article, if you are interested in learning a little more about this wonderful bird.

And now, let's pause for a moment of silence in honor of a long life.  *begins to cry*

Flamingos stick together :)

And to find out teenagers beat Greater up. I'd like to get my hands on them....

It's sad and amazing all at the same time. Can you imagine? The oldest living in the world. (Fluta was very upset about this.)
