What a coincidence.  There's a pink dolphin that's native to my pants.

Strawberry starburst?
Bubblegum?
Cheesecake?

Flamingos aren't pink, they eat very red shrimp.

At what point does this cease to matter?  There's this troubling conservative streak in environmental science, where we think things must be preserved in what we think our ecosystem looked like in 1491.  There is no balance, just a billion seesaws going back and forth and moving around all over the place.

Whether or not flamingos, armadillos, cuban anoles, or anything else is native to Florida is irrelevant.  We're never going back to the way things were.  Just get a general consensus on how many of them you want, and try to manage accordingly.

His point they are not invasive and if they show up again it's okay.
