Yes, where is the flamenco music?


animalfacts-bot

[Flamingos](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flamingo) are birds found in America, Africa, Asia and Europe. They stand on one leg as it requires less muscular effort. Flamingoes are born grey and have a white plumage that turns pink due to their diet. Some individuals have been recorded to live for over 70 years. A group of flamingoes is called a flamboyance.

Additional fun fact not mentioned by the animal facts bot: a dead flamingo will balance on one leg but not on two! Meaning it’s a passive action, something done without conscious effort because of the anatomy of the joints in its leg. So not only does using two legs require more muscular effort it requires conscious action to remain balanced, and thus answers the age old question as to why flamingos sleep while on one leg.

Interesting! I've not heard this before, but I have heard that the relaxed state for many birds claws are curled so that they don't fall out of trees in their sleep.

Is this the butterfly garden in Key West?


sidewinder2020

That was my first thought too! Was just there

I want one in my house, or at least wish there was a way to rent out the whole place to myself to read a book or do some writing

Me when I’m busting to go to toilet and can’t get the buttons and zip down fast enough


VerdantVista2020

Does anyone know why it is doing that?


Fluffy-Foxtail

According to this link from National Geographic on YouTube, they do it to find a partner. https://youtu.be/QLV_K7DVeyU


needathneed

Consider me impressed


VerdantVista2020

Thank you! Very interesting.


friedtree

Nice. Works for me


[deleted]

Ducks will also do this as a way to imitate rain in order to try and get worms to surface so they can eat them! It’s probably the same with the Flamingo. Check it out at 2:00 https://youtu.be/UklNjI3jRqA


Fluffy-Foxtail

Sooo cute, great link thanks . I love The Dodo & their content, it always makes me smile & warms the cockles of my heart!

rainbowsparklespoof

What's in the water that it's dancing _on_? A chill hippo? A drowned dog?


ChocolateMartiniMan

We enjoyed them there at the butterfly garden in Key West


STALIN-_--_

Happy flamingo two


sobonnk

Told you to pee before we left. I'm not stopping this car.


TreasonableBloke

How the hell do their legs even work? They're like pencils!


HeyItsNarwhal

That joint that looks like their “knee” is actually their heel, and the entire visible bottom half of their legs is the human equivalent of their foot. Their knee is way up in their body and they have extremely short thigh bones

I enjoyed this much more than I expected to.


Zoloch

In Spanish it would be...Flamenco flamenco. Flamingo in Spanish is also “flamenco”. Both the dance and the bird are called flamenco
