Adorable: Baby flamingo learns to stand on one leg

Spread the love

If you need a moment of pure “adorableness” today, this baby flamingo’s struggle to stand on one leg is it! Researchers think the birds learned to stand on one leg in order to expend less muscular energy while standing still and resting.

And so this little gal(assuming she is female) with her soft downy white feathers, needed some cheering as she practiced. Standing in front of what is likely her mother, she stuck her tiny leg behind her and seemed to try and tuck it under her downy coat before setting it down quickly.

Flamingos turn pink as they mature after mainly eating diets high in beta carotene – shrimp and algae.
