A flamingo believed to be the oldest of its kind in the world has died at the age of 83 in Australia.
Greater the flamingo was put to sleep on Friday due to complications brought about by arthritis and old age, officials at Adelaide Zoo said.
The flamingo, named after its species, arrived at the zoo in 1933 and was a popular attraction.
Flamingos are wading birds with a very specialised diet. They have far shorter life spans in the wild.
Greater flamingos - scientific name Phoenicopterus roseus - are usually larger than lesser flamingos and are characterised by pale plumage and pink bills.
