Less is more! The Lesser flamingo (Phoenicoparrus minor) is the smallest of all Flamingos, but it also has the highest population – it is estimated that there are some five million in the world. It is found in Africa and Asia, especially India. The clearest difference between this species and the greater flamingo, the only other Old World species of flamingo, is the much more extensive black on the bill. Lesser flamingos are prey to a variety of species, including marabou storks, baboons, African fish eagles, wildcats, and African golden wolves.
