(CNN) – Pink may be a cute color when it comes to clothes, but that’s not always true in nature.

The pinker the flamingo, the more aggressive they become when fighting for food.

That’s according to a new study published on Monday.

Zoologists observed the birds as they foraged for food.

They found that pinker male and female flamingos were more aggressive than their paler rivals.

That’s because the pinker birds were generally healthier.

Flamingos get the pigment from the food they eat.

While the birds seemed to show more respect to the pinker kinds, when given the space experts say flamingos exhibited less aggressive behaviors and spent more time foraging.
