Flamingos

Why They're Cool: The flamingos in the Galapagos are said to be the most brilliant shade of pink of any flamingo species, thanks to their diet of brine shrimp (rich in the carotenoids that create the pink pigment). You'll spot them stalking on their impossibly spindly legs through shallow lagoons, feeding with their heads upside down in the water.

Where to See Them: Isabela, Santa Cruz, Floreana, Santiago, Rabida
