C'est un bel animal parmi de beaux animaux.

In the example,

C'est un bel animal parmi de beaux animaux.

why is the 'de' not plural for 'des', as we are talking about 'some beautiful animals'?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Beau, nouveau, vieux have different plural forms for masculine and feminine (adjectives)"

Hi John,

It is a little grammatical rule which is explained in the following lesson -

Hope this helps!
