When most of us think of animals or the outdoors, pink isn't the first color that springs to mind. Also, pink is not always common among animals. There are a few different pathways to pinkness in animals.
One of the most widespread pink animals is the domestic pig. There are hundreds of different breeds of domestic pigs, and they may be found all over the world.
These huge wading birds are easily recognizable by their bright pink plumage and very long, spoon-shaped bills. Every day, they make their way through mangroves and wetlands, where the water is relatively shallow.
The American flamingo, found in the humid regions of North and South America, is the brightest of the species. South America is home to a wide variety of animal and plant life.
Caused by recessive genes that trigger an overabundance of a specific color, these conditions are known as erythrism. Nevertheless, in other areas, like as North America, species may be predominately pink.
Native to Australia, these birds flaunt bright pink and gray plumage. Their tiny legs and fat body make them petite passerines. And during the day, you can find them flying among eucalyptus and rain forests.

This dragonfly is widespread across the Americas and calls North and South America home. They congregate in muddy areas near bodies of water, both natural and manmade. The males are a vibrant pink.
