Default A Lawn Ornament, NOT!!

A new articles entry has been added:

Article# 329: A Lawn Ornament, NOT!!

Let's talk Flamingos!! Everyone knows what a flamingo looks like! You've seen them as ticky tacky plastic lawn ornaments or you took one home from your Caribbean vacation in a snow globe! You saw one at the zoo or read about them in a storybook. Alice uses flamingos as croquet mallets in Through the Looking Glass (by Lewis Carroll).
But did you know........
  • Flamingos can swim, and flamingos can fly.
  • They live in lagoons, or lakes, where there is lots of mud and water.
  • A flamingo's pink or reddish feather color comes from its diet, which is high in alpha and beta-carotene. People eat beta-carotene when they eat carrots.
  • When a flamingo nests, they typically lay one large, white egg.
  • The typical lifespan of a flamingo is 20 to 30 years, but 50 years is not unheard of.
  • Flamingos are not on the US List of Endangered Species at the current time.
  • References: www.thewildones.org and www.seaworld.org
Please join us in welcoming AmandaBearLove's new Flamingo to Buildabearville!

It is retired but I have heard there are a few left at the Rainforest cafe. You'd have to call and ask if they'd ship.

Are there buildabearworkshop stores at all rain forest cafe's ?

I'm online right now and might purchase the flamingo.

Would buildabearworkshop give me a code for my certificate?
The lady says it's ready to be brought to life and comes with a blank birth certificate to personalize. not sure...
