ZOO KEEPERS have been caused a headache by two flamingos who don't like the colour pink.
Feathers flew when Little and Large who are being hand reared at London Zoo, in Outer Circle, Regent's Park, were introduced to a pink sock puppet.
Little, who weights 420g compared to her 620g companion Large, was brought beak to beak with the pink flamingo puppet in a bid to encourage her to eat solid foods.
The cute chicks have since refused to have anything to do with the colour pink, which could be a problem when they move into the flamingo pool.
Keeper Alison Brown said: "They just don't seem to like the colour. Birds see in different colour spectrums than humans, so there's no logical reason for them not liking pink.
"We're hoping to get them used to it before they turn pink themselves, or else they will be in a for a shock."
