Are flamingos mammals or reptiles?
Flamingos are neither mammals or reptiles. They are classified as birds since they have feathers and lay eggs. Yes and they still breath air but that doesn't mean they are mammals

A crab is categorized as an "Arthropod". Species in this grouping of animals also include insects, spiders, scorpions, lobsters, millipedes, and even more. They are known for things such as: -Having an exoskeleton, meaning their skeleton is on the outside -Being invertebrates, meaning th…ey lack backbones (MORE)
Mammals are warm-blooded, have fur, feed their young milk, andusually give birth to live young. Reptiles are cold-blooded, havescales, usually lay eggs, and generally do not feed their young.
No, a reptile has the ability to lay eggs. Mammals give birth to their young after a period of time, as the egg develops inside them, to first become an embryo, and then a foetus.
A mammal is an animal which is warm-blooded, and gives birth to live babies (With an exception to some animals). For Example: Dolphins, whales, wolfs, bears, lions, tigers, etc.. A reptile is cold blooded and lay eggs, for example: Snake, lizzard, turtle, crocodile, etc.
A Mammal. It has hair, not scales, and it bears it young live and feeds them with milk. They r fcked up
Mammals evolved from synapsids, and more specifically, from therapsids. Reptiles started to differentiate (become different) from amphibians around 400 million years ago. Various groups evolved out of these early reptiles including crocodiles, dinosaurs and birds, but most importantly to us a str…ange group of animals called the Mammal-like Reptiles. The Mammal-like Reptiles, or Therapsids first appeared about 285 million years ago near the begiining of the Permian which is well before the dinosaurs. They evolved quickly and many different groups arose. They were very successful until about the end of the Permian, about 245 million years ago, when something catastrophic affected the earth and nearly all of the species then living died out. New species evolved rapidly to fill this empty habitat, among them the first dinosaurs and a few million years later the first mammals. The first mammal may never be known, but the Genus Morganucodon and in particular Morganucodon watsoni , a 2-3 cm (1 inch) long weasel-like animal whose fossils were first found in caves in Wales and around Bristol (UK), but later unearthed in China, India , North America, South Africa and Western Europe is a possible contender. It is believed to have lived between 200 MYA and 210 MYA. However Gondwanadon tapani reported from India on the basis of a single tooth in 1994 may be an earlier contender for the title, with a claimed date of 225 MYA. These early mammals were small, insectivorous, nocturnal, hairy and warm-blooded. Warm-bloodedness is believed to have first evolved among the cynodonts, a late but successful group of mammal-like reptiles from which the mammals evolved. The cynodonts were the only mammal-like reptiles to survive to the Jurassic, in fact they nearly made it into the Cretaceous, and definitely coexisted with many of the major dinosaurs. The first true mammals were forced to remain small and relatively "insignificant" because of the domination of the dinosaurs. However, after their extinction mammals were given more room to grow larger and diversify. (MORE)
Reptiles and mammals both have a backbone and a notochord, sothey are vertebrates. . They both have a full respiratory system, converting oxygeninto carbon dioxide. . They both have brains, hearts, lungs and livers. The differences are that mammals are warm-blooded, or endothermic,meaning that t…hey regulate their own body temperature. Reptiles arecold-blooded, or ectothermic, meaning they cannot regulate theirown temperature, so their body temperature changes with theirenvironment. How these animals reproduce is also very different. The majority ofmammals give live birth, with only two exceptions - the twomonotremes, which are tye platypus and the echidna. All mammalsfeed their young on mothers' milk, regardless of the species. Whilemost reptiles lay eggs, there are a significant number that givelive birth. In contrast to mammals, most reptiles do not look aftertheir young, because reptile young are hatched or born fullydeveloped, they are able to fend for themselves almost immediately.Generally, mammals' offspring take longer to grow and mature thanreptiles.

A fish is nor a amphibian, reptile or mammal. Fishes are divided into many different classes : 1. Class Agnatha 2. Class Chondrichthyes 3. Class Osteichthyes 4. Class Placodermi So fish is word that we use to describe (vaguely) any animal that falls into these numerous classes. Would you think that… a Whale shark is a fish? (MORE)
There are some characteristics that are unique to mammals: hair,sweat glands, mammary glands, and the neocortex in the brain;reptiles lack all of those features and have scales in place ofhair. Many of them are also poisonous. On other grounds, most reptiles have a three-chamber heart, exceptcrocod…iles, who have a four-chamber heart like all mammals. Also,reptiles are ovoviviparous or aviparous (they lay eggs) unlikemammals, which are viviparous (gives birth to live young). Anotable exception in the platypus, who lays eggs but is a mammal (amonotreme to be precise). Reptiles are ectothermic ("cold-blooded"), unlike endothermic("warm-blooded")mammals, which means they are dependent onenvironmental heat sources and have relatively low metabolic rates.Mammals, on the other hand, have fast metabolisms. This means thatthey use up energy much faster than reptiles and tend to live ashorter life (size for size) and move around much more whereas areptile will often slows its metabolism and wait for food to comenear it instead of the energy-costly mammalian tactic of lookingfor food. Inly one mammal is poisonous, again its the platypus. Mammals have the advantage of being able to live in a wider varietyof habitats than reptiles due to their warm blood; which means thatthey can keep themselves at the optimum temperature (as long asfood is available) in a wider range of habitats. Finally mammals are synapsids, while living reptiles are eitheranapsids or diapsids. Mammals are endothermic (they produce their own heat), they have hair on their bodies, females produce milk for their babies, they have live birth, breathe through lungs, and most life on land (terrestrial). . Reptiles are ectothermic (they rely on the sun to regulate their body temperature), they lay amniotic eggs (eggs away from water), their skin is scaly & hard, they can be venomous, and most are carnivores. . Also: . Cold-Blooded is not a real thing. Reptiles don't have cold blood they just can't regulate their temperature. . Fun Fact:. Platypus is the only venomous mammal.. (MORE)
A reptile is in no way a mammal. A reptile is a vertebrate, but it is completely different from a mammal. It doesn't have hair, it is an ectotherm, and it doesn't feed its young with milk. A mammal has hair at some point in its life, is an endotherm, and feeds it's young with milk.
Chickens are birds, which is a different group of vertebrates from mammals and reptiles. Birds are all those creatures which lay eggs and have feathers..
vertebrates(with a backbone) . 1. breathe through lungs 2.live on land (most of them>>reptiles) 3.internal fertilization
the Road Runner is a type of bird and it is very small, contrary to the belief with loony toons the road runner is in face smaller than a coyote and isn't even a snack for one either lol.. Hope it helps,. Silver ^_^
Neither. Penguins are not mammals or reptiles - they are birds. Thedifferences between birds and mammals and reptiles are: Birds have feathers while mammals have fur, hair or skin, andreptiles have scaly skin. Birds lay eggs whilst mammals (with the exception of themonotremes) bear live young. Rep…tiles can reroduce either way,depending on the species. Birds and reptiles do not feed their young on mothers' milk likeall mammals do. (MORE)
a reptile is a cold blooded genus of animal that lays eggs and generaly has a slow metabolism. they are often also poisonous. a mammal is a genus of animal that (except for the platipus) gives birth to live young and has a fast metabolism. this means that they use up energy much faster than reptile…s and tend to live a shorter life (size for size). they tend to move around much more whereas a reptile will often slows its metabolism and wait for food to come near it instead of the energy-costly mamalian tactic of looking for food. only one mammal is poisonous, again its the platipus. mammals have the advantage of being able to live in a wider variety of habitats than reptiles due to their warm blood which means that they can keep themselves at the optimum temperature (as long as food is available). also mammals tend to be covered in fur and reptiles are covered in scales.

In European Legends they're said to look reptalic, but it contridicts other European legends about them. Reptiles are cold blooded and dragons couldn't have been cold blooded because they were said to live on snowy mountains, where it'd be too cold for a reptile to survive.
Something that is the same about mammals and reptiles are that they are both alive. Diferent: reptiles r cold blooded!
\nNeither. Sharks are fish. They are in the same family as Rays. They have skeletons made up of cartilage (excluding the jaws and teeth).
No, flamingos are not reptiles. They obviously are birds, because of their feathers, wings, beaks, and hollow bones. If they were reptiles, flamingos would have scales , and smooth , wet skin, and would be cold blooded .
No, flamingos are birds. Birds reproduce by egg laying. Mammals give birth to live young.
No, a Flamingo is a bird. Not a mammal. Mammals (class Mammalia ) are a class of vertebrate animals characterized by the presence of sweat glands, including sweat glands modified for milk production, hair, three middle ear bones used in hearing, and a neocortex region in the brain. All mammals …(except for the five species of monotremes) give birth to live young instead of laying eggs. Most mammals also possess specialized teeth, and the largest group of mammals, the placentals, use a placenta during gestation. The mammalian brain regulates endothermic and circulatory systems, including a four-chambered heart. No. A flamingo is a bird. (MORE)
Yes, reptiles are NOT mammals. Reptiles are exothermic vertebrates (coldblooded), have no fur, lay eggs and do not lactate. Mammals are endothermic vertebrates (warmblooded), have fur/hair, give birth to live young and lactate.
Giraffes are classed as mammals. They are not related to retiles in any way.. They are classed as mammals because they are vertebrates (They have a backbone, or spine), they are endothermic (this is sometimes called "warm blooded", and basically means they regulate their own boy temperature by usi…ng internal mechanisms, like sweating and panting), they have hair on their bodies, and they produce milk to feed their young, as well as giving birth to live young.. Reptiles on the other hand are completely different. They are Ectotherm (this is what's known as "cold blooded" and means they use external means, such as basking the sun to warm up, or hiding in the shade to cool down), they have scales instead of hair, and they lay eggs instead of giving birth to live young, and do not produce milk for them, as hatchlings do not need it..

No flamingos belong to the bird family and not the reptile family as they have wings.
reptiles and mammals are considered two separate categories of animals. reptiles differ mainly due to the fact that they are egg laying animals and are cold blooded (exothermic) mammals however have an umbilical cord supplying food directly to the foetus. mammals are also warm blooded (endot…hermic) meaning they can regulate their own body heat regardless of environmental temperatures (unlike cold blooded reptiles) (MORE)
There are individual mammals that are bigger than individual reptiles, and there are individual reptiles that are bigger that individual mammals. However, the average size of all extant mammals is larger than the average size of all extant reptiles. Most reptiles are lizards and snakes, which are us…ually small. Only a few species of tortises, alligators, crocodiles, caimans, and very large snakes are big. Most mammals are bats, rodents, and shrews, which are usually small, but there are still hundreds of mammals that are big, including the biggest animal on the planet: the blue whale. There are more large mammals than there are large reptiles. (MORE)
THE SIMILARITIES BETWEEN A REPTILE AND A MAMMAL =) 1. live in land (some) 2.breathe through lungs 3.internal fertilization
Well....i think he would be a mammal but is he even real????? Wolverines are mammals.
They are all vertebrates, most of which are four-legged, that, as adults, breathe oxygen on land.
The basal amniotes, which resembled small lizards, split into two groups: the sauropsids and the synapsids. The sauropsids evolved into reptiles and birds. The synapsids evolved into mammals.
a mammal is a warm blooded animal. A reptile is a lizard and snakesuch as a bearded dragon or even corn snake. However AFROG IS AN ANPHIBIAN
a mammal has fur and has milk and produces milk in its body butreptiles have scaly skin and live on water . +++ Also: Mammals are warm-blooded and viviparous. Reptiles arecold-blooded and oviparous - and only a few of the reptile specieslive on (or in) water!
No, a reptile cannot be a mammal. Mammals are warmblooded and reptiles are coldblooded. Mammals give birth to live young and reptiles lay eggs. Mammals have hair and reptiles have scales on their skin.
Mammals get pregnant; reptiles lay eggs. Additionally, mammals have fur, feed their young milk, and usually walk on vertical legs, have differentiated teeth, and are warm-blooded. Reptiles have scales, generally do not care for their young, walk with their legs splayed (except for snakes and som…e lizards, which have none), do not have differentiated teeth, and are cold-blooded.

Dalmatians are mammals because they're dogs. And dogs give birth and they are warm blooded.
the cheetah is a mammal.It may be obvious because a reptile would lay eggs, and mammals don't. Just think about a cheetah laying eggs.It isn't a picture that would be real , wouldn't it?
A snake is a reptile, as it has scaly skin and many other features a reptile wound have. Therefore yes, a python is a reptile. :)
No. There is no species that can be half one classification and half another. It is a biological impossibility. The platypus is completely mammal.
It depends. If it was lion vs. turtle it would be lion. If it was king cobra vs. mouse it would be king cobra.
No, a flamingo is not a reptile mammal etc, whatever that is. The fact that they have wings and feathers should give you a clue as to what they are.
It is a mammal: a warm-blooded, air-breathing animal that nurses its young. All cats are mammals.
Mammals are characterized by being warm blooded and reptiles cold blooded. This means that mammals can regulate their own temperature whilst reptiles are influenced by the external temperature. Mammals also give birth to live young and suckle their young via special mammary glands (hence the name ma…mmals). Mammals provide a high degree of parental care. Reptiles do not usually give birth to live young and also normally lay eggs. Most reptiles do not provide much parental care and young are expected to fend for themselves as soon as they are born.

The physical changes from reptiles to mammals are there skin. Reptiles have dry scaly skin and mammals have smooth skin.
They are mammals.Aardvarks heve teats as females. Reptiles are egg layers. Aardvarks are placental. 'nuff said..
The Platypus is a Monotreme, or egg laying mammal. They nurse theiryoung as do other mammals. Also they use echo location much in thesame way dolphins (another mammal) do. Not all reptiles lay eggseither. Some snakes bear live young.
Neither. Both reptiles and mammals are vertebrates. Starfish arepart of a group of invertebrates called echinoderms.
Mammal. It has the four things that make it a mammal. Has hair, has a backbone, is warm blooded, and offspring are born alive. If an animal doesn't have these 4 things they are not a mammal.
A mammal. There are four conditions that make a mammal. (1) have a backbone , (2) have fur or hair, (3) are warm blooded, (4) has young alive.
A crow is neither, it is a bird. Why it is neither: Mammal: gives birth to live young (a crow lays eggs) Reptiles and Amphibians: "cold-blooded," (crows are warm-blooded)
No, a newt is a salamander and it is an amphibian. Newts live partof their lives on land but need water too, to stay wet, hunt forfood and lay their eggs.
