Scarlet ibis (Eudocimus ruber), French Guiana

The Scarlet ibis owes its flamboyant red colour to its diet, which consits mainly of small shellfish such as shrimps. The large colonies of Scarlet ibises can only survive in healthy mangrove forests. The species has been fully protected in the French Guiana since 1976.
