is my monitor jacked up, or are they actually close to an orange-ish red color?
I would think with a name like flamingo they'd be like hot pink or something.
Pull up your preferred search engine, click on the image tab, type "flamingo", view images. While you view you will notice the flamingo varies in color from an Orangeish to pinkish to almost white. The pink is simply the most iconic color dubbed by the media.
same concept as the husky being primarily known for it's blue eyes and a white with black or dark gray coat even though the coat varies into brown and reddish colors and many have brown eyes.
