Photo Slideshow: In the Pink of Health
Once a year, the Chilean flamingos at Lincoln Park Zoo receive routine medical checkups. Enjoy a photo slideshow of the zoo’s lead vet making a flamingo house call.
Kathryn Gamble, D.V.M., the zoo’s Dr. Lester E. Fisher Director of Veterinary Medicine, oversaw the latest exams in May 2014.
