adelaide - The last flamingo of Australia is no longer. The Adelaide City Zoo put Chile to sleep on Friday (local time) because the health of the over 60-year-old animal deteriorated dramatically, according to Australian media.
Chile's Chilean flamingo was one of the attractions of the animal park. Since the death of the male Greater she was the only living flamingo in Australia.
That she was more than sixty years old is exceptional. In the wild the animals do not grow older than twenty to thirty years and in captivity about fifty.
