Both  male and female parents can feed chicks with a special liquid that they produce in their throats called crop milk.

The “bendy” bit on a flamingo’s leg is actually the ankle!

 

Their knees are so close to their bodies that you can’t see them.

Flamingos are also fast, going up to 35 miles per hour or 56 kilometers per hour. That’s one-and-a-half times as fast as Usain Bolt!
