You eat flamingo?

While reading Polar Bear Polar Bear What do you hear? to a student, I paused at the picture of the flamingo and asked, "What color is the flamingo?" 

Another student in the class yelled out, "I know!  It's yellow."  I held up the book and pointed to the flamingo and said, "The flamingo is pink."  This student said, "Yes, but it's yellow inside."  So I further questioned, "How do you know this?"  She replied, "I eat it at home all the time.  It's yellow inside."  I clarified further, "A flamingo?  You eat flamingo at home?" She explained, "Yes I eat it at home!  Mango is my favorite fruit.  It is yellow inside."
