Flamingos and Natural Selection
Overproduction of Offspring
The small town of East Wood was heavily populated with flamingos. There were pink, blue, and yellow. Everyone loved the town and felt very safe in it. Little did the know that many of them were in lots of trouble.
Many of the flamingos noticed that the population was deceasing at a rapid rate. Every set of parents had two kids. Soon the island was full of life, almost to full.
Everyone noticed that the blue and yellow populations were rising dramatically while the pink populations were decreasing slowly.
There arnt as many pink flamingos as there were blue and yellow. It turns out that they had a predator, the eagle. Eagles feed on the pink flamingos eggs making their population decrease.
The pink flamingos adapted to this by changing their feather colors to purple. This happened over many years and the purple flamingo population continued to grow.
Blue, purple, and yellow flamingos all live in the small town of East Wood happy and away from danger. Behavioral adaptation helped the pink flamingos get away from danger.
