Boots Were Made For Walking – and Helping This Baby Flamingo Grow Healthy and Strong

This baby flamingo named Squish is definitely following in Blondie’s footsteps with his cool new blue booties.

Zoo keepers from Singapore’s Jurong Bird Park first found Squish in an abandoned egg three months ago. After keeping him in an incubator, he finally hatched in early June.

Since he needs sunlight and exercise in order to grow healthy and strong, Squish is taken for daily walks through the zoo.

In order to protect his feet from the hot concrete, however, zoo keepers made him his own set of blue snap-on boots.

Flamingos are typically accustomed to walking in soft mud, rather than concrete – but thanks to his sweet kicks, his feet are expected to develop just fine.

In one month, Squish will join a flock of 300 flamingos in the bird park.
