The Scarlet Ibis is a species of ibis that lives in tropical South America and is completely scarlet-colored, except for black wing-tips. It is very closely related to the White Ibis; sometimes the two species hybridize, resulting in pink offspring.
Scarlet Ibises nest in trees and lay two to four eggs per breeding season. A juvenile Scarlet Ibis is grey and white and gradually develops its scarlet plumage after eating red crabs.
The Scarlet Ibis has a fairly large natural range, and a conservation status of Least Concern as of September 2014.
