Neighborhood Science: Evolution of the Flamingo’s Smile
Tuesday, April 09, 2019, 07:00pm - 08:00pm

Chris Torres (Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior Graduate Program)

“Evolution of the Flamingo’s Smile”

Flamingos are some of the most iconic and recognizable animals in the world… but where did they come from and why do they look so funny? After centuries of struggle, biologists are finally beginning to make sense of how the bizarre flamingo lifestyle might have evolved. Come listen to the story of flamingo evolution, as told by one of the guys who helped piece it all together, and learn about how long flamingos have been around, what their relatives are like, and what they looked like before they turned so pink. Q&A will follow the talk.

This event is held outside, so please dress for the weather and bring a chair or blankets to sit on.

Neighborhood Science, an offshoot of Science Under the Stars, presents family-friendly talks at Austin Public Library branches across Austin.

Location: Howson Branch Library, 2500 Exposition Blvd, Austin, Texas 78703
