Black or white

The difference between a human and a black swan is that as a human grows older, he/she starts getting white hair. The reverse happens with the black swan. As the cygnet ages, it grows black hair (see Figure 1). Figure 1. Changes to hair colour in the development of Cygnus atratus.

Yes, they are quite cute (Lee, 2005). Also, in the picture, they are eating some sort of white strips of 'water plant'.
