Primary consumers are the herbivores of Earth, one step aboveproducers on the food chain. They are typically grazing animals andeat grasses and foliage.
secondary consumer most of the time is a omnivore
They catch the food by putting their heads down, putting their beaks in the water upside down, and using their beaks to extract spirulina, which are definitely not shrimp (the…y are blue-green algae--not even the same Kingdom). Flamingos do this using bristle-like structures in the mouth as a filter, opening and shutting their beaks very quickly to move the water in and out of the oral cavity (mouth)--the same way a baleen whale catches krill, which ARE little shrimps. Easy, but not simple. They use their beak to catch shrimps out of the water. Easy. NOT They eat a special algae that gives them their pink color (because it contains high amounts of carotenoids). The algae is named spirulina, which is renowned as a very healthy "whole food"nutritional supplement, and can be bought in health food stores.
They get their food by sticking their head in the ground almost using their beak as a drill and getting food from the ground,somtimes they stick they beak in water. They eat b…y putting its head upside-down into the water looking backwards. It takes in water that is rich in tiny organisms and filters nutrients from the water with a comb-like organ on its tongue.
Flamingos eat brine shrimp, and blue-green algae.

A frog eats bugs which are a form of meat therefore a frog would be a carnivore, meaning they eat meat. Thank you for asking.
Flamingos eat lots of shrimp, which is why they turn pink
