Us the flamingo a herbivorou?
Flamingos are omnivores because they eat shrimp and other small creatures that live in shallow water; they also eat algae, a microscopic plant the lives in water.
A flamingo is a long legged pink feathered wading bird of Africa.It has a large down turned beak for sifting shallow lakes for shellfish etc which maintains the pink plumage. The broad pink wingshave black wing tips. There was also an aircraft of the 1930s called the De Havilland(UK) Flamingo. It wa…s a four engined airliner and could carry 20odd passengers. (MORE)
The mattress is by Spring Air, called Suite Excellence and says made expressly for our guests comfort - so appears to be custom made. I know this because we stayed in a Go room for over a week and loved it so much I took a photo of the tag to see if we could track one down here in Aust. I recently …stayed at the Grand Biloxi in Biloxi, MS, and also had a wonderful mattress. The tag also said "Spring Air" and "Suite Excellence". I, too, would LOVE to find out where to buy one of these. Best mattress I have EVER slept on, and I'm 61 years old! I sure hope someone can tell me where I can buy one! (MORE)
Yes, Greater flamingos fly about 350 miles per night duringmigration. A flamingo has to take a running start before it flies. The flock will fly in formations that take advantage of the windcurrents. The plastic flamingos that people have on their lawns do not fly.

A herbivore is an animal that gets its energy from eating plants.. An omnivore eats both plants and meat.. A carnivore eats only meat.. "Herbivore" is a term that refers to a living being that eats only plants and natural materials. A herbivore is a animal that only eats plants or grass. It gets …all its energy and nutrients from plants. Many animals who are herbivores eat all day long like cows. Herbivores cannot eat meat, they have a special digestive system which can only digest plants. They have sharp cutting teeth in front and flat grinding teeth at the back Herbivores are animals that eat only on grass or plants example sheep, cows, rabbits etc. Herbivores are animals that eat only plants.

A herbivore is a animal or thing that eats any plant like, flowers, weed, tree leaves, and all other plants They only eat plants. Herbivores are animals that eat only plants and plants alone (rabbits). Carnivores eat only meat (wolves), and omnivores eat both meat and plants (humans). an animal that eats plants. simply a non meat-eater The official definition for the word herbivore is "an animal thatfeeds on plants." a herbavor is a animal that eats only meat, they are eaten by people and birds which eat wood and dirt. They are also killed by ants for water and dirt and fish (MORE)
No, because they eat small fish. shrimp, algae, and other small creatures found in shallow water. Flamingos are omnivores.
If you're asking for the defintion, it is: eating only plants, not meat.. \nHerbivours are animals that only eat plants.
Flamingos walk on long, stilt like legs that are designed for wading in shallow water. They have webbed feet so they won't sink into the mud at the bottom of the water. When they fly, flamingos run a few steps into the wind; the flock will fly in formations that take advantage of the wind currents. …For more information see the link below. Flamingos spend most of their time on the ground. They walk on long thin legs designed to wade in the shallow water where they find their food. Their feet are webbed to prevent sinking in the muddy bottom. When they fly, they take several strides before they take off. They fly in large groups, the flock will fly in formations that take advantage of the wind currents. (MORE)
Flamingos are carnivores because their main food source is shrimp and other small creatures that live in shallow water.
Flamingos live in areas with shallow water beside lakes and riverswhere there are few predators. Their most common predators arebirds of prey such as eagles and hawks passing over. The adultflamingos are not in danger from such predators because of theirlarge size, but their chicks are and they must… stay near andprotect their chicks. The biggest danger to flamingos is loss of habitat due to humanencroachment and pollution by humans. (MORE)
The habitat of a flamingo is freshwater and saltwater lakes,marshlands and wetlands in both tropical and subtropical regions.The flamingo is found in Central and South America, the Caribbean,south west Europe, Asia and Africa. Any place that would grow a lotof algae. Flamingos like hot soda lakes as… algae will grow therebut not much of anything else. It keeps the place from supportingresident predators. They usually live nearby lakes or muddy waters, they eat the shrimpand algae; that makes the feathers pink. (MORE)
Different flamingos are different sizes. Yet the largest one can look a 40 year old man right in the eye! Maybe can even tower over him at 6' 3''.
They eat shrimp and some anchovies, as well. (It is the shrimp that accounts for the pink color of flamingos.)
Phoenicopteridae . (I haven't got any flamingos in my family!- but next door might have one or two!)
Flamingos move at moderate rates. When they run, they don't run far, as soon as they've taken a few steps, they take of in flight.
Flamingos are omnivorous; they mainly eat tiny [pink] shrimp in water and [pink] flies that fly above the water, hence their pink color. They also eat algea, seeds, and small crustaceans. When they are born, they're white-ish yellow, but turn pink because of their diet.
Because the very social flamingos regularly consume plant matter (algae) and animals (brine shrimps, etc...) they qualify to be omnivores. See the related Wikipedia link listed below for more information: Yes, flamingos eat microscopic plants. yes flamingos are omnivores
Flamingos are omnivores, they eat algae, a vegetation, shrimp, and other small creatures found in shallow water.
It is called a flamingo because it comes from a Latin word called Phoenicopterus ruper , that means pink colored organism.
Herbivores are plant-eating animals. They graze, eat fresh leaves, grass and young shoots, whilst others help clean up by eating dead and rotting vegetation matter.
It doesn't, the only shelter a flamingo has is when its an unborn chick an its parents are sitting on them.
A goat is a herbivore because it eats only plants. A herbivore is an animal that does not eat meat.
Its the Shrimp they eat, since its pink and they eat so much of it it turns them pink.
Overall, an extremely low amount. Even plants do not have high primary productivity (amount of light energy converted to chemical energy) compared to the sun's total energy output. The sun's light is absorbed or reflected; a substantial amount is reflected. Even then, plants can only utilize certain… wavelengths of light - while others cannot be used. All in all, only about 1% of all sunlight that comes into the Earths atmosphere is actually used in photosynthesis. But of that energy that is assimilated by plants, again, not all of it is going to be passed on to the next level -- primary consumers. The green world hypothesis states that there will always be more "green" or plants than the herbivores or primary consumers can eat. These herbivores are held in check by a variety of reasons, but ultimately much of the biomass of the primary producers is never passed along. This contributes to a large chunk of the energy that is not passed to primary consumers. On average, only 10% of available energy within any trophic level is passed along to the next level (depending on the ecosystem and trophic structure). So we could say that of the 1% energy that the plants use in primary productivity, 10% of that is present in primary consumers. Or 0.1% of the sun's total energy intercepted by Earth goes to the world's primary consumers. This percent is further reduced when you only account for small herbivores. There are many different types of primary consumers who might actually be present in a different trophic level, which is often the case with decomposers. The number of small herbivores varies within ecosystems, though in most, they do not comprise a large population. (MORE)
(Herbivores refer to plant eaters.) Elephants are large animals but are strictly herbivores. A herbivore will usually only eat vegetation, but some will eat insects.
Most humans are not herbivores because most humans eat both meat and plants. That makes those people omnivores. People that do not eat meat are vegetarians, or herbivores. :)
Yes, the Greater Flamingo is found in Egypt in great numbers. The best place to see them in Egypt is Lake Qaran where numbers of Flamingos are up to 1000.
No flamingos belong to the bird family and not the reptile family as they have wings.
Flamingos choose regions that have little food for other animals and avoid having many natural predators. They can be the target of large birds that move from place to place. Grown flamingos are not the target but the chicks are vulnerable and the parents must protect them and kept them close by.
To chew things like grass. types of herbivore teeth are: incisors and molars (I'm 11)
no but they have small comb like things called lammelae that strain the tiny food they eat! i am awesome
It is because of all of the seafood that they eat. the food may leave an epic stench.but i bet you smell worse.
Flamingos protect themselves by pecking predators with its beak. Flamingos also stay in large groups to avoid and confuse predators.
Flamingos can be found in the wild along any of the United States' tropical coast, and are concentrated primarily in Florida.
My 8 year old son and I were at Arasta Gardens a month ago, and the tallest flamingo in the flock came up and nuzzled against the blond lad while touching his beak to the top of his head. Another bird, or the same one, repeated the procedure two minutes later. ENR
Nope. Only a mammiferous is able to produce milk. However, they do produce a milk-like substance from the cells lining their crops which has similar properties to milk. This is used to feed their young until their beaks are fully developed.
trees first trap the solar energy.this solar energy passes to the heterotrophs as energy flow ,following the low of Lindeman's 10% law.. animals gets this energy and uses it in various functions like respiration,metabolism,locomotion,reproduction,many physical works etc..
An herbivore is an animal that only eats plants. A good sentence would be: The deer is an herbivore because it only eats grass.
Herbivores are at the bottom of the food chain, if they did not exist carnivores would have nothing to eat and they would cease to exist, as would everyone else above them on the food chain
I'm not going to post one for you, but they can be found on google.
The main endangerment for flamingos is loss of habitat to human development and their habitats get poisoned by pollution.
they use it like an abrasive conveyor belt: scraping organic food particles into their esophagus.
there is no real way of telling but a theory shows that if a flamingo stood on one leg for that amount of time it would get pretty tired
FLAMINGOS can eat so diff. from humans. They can fly which is also what a human cant do either.
herbivores have special digestive system which allows them to digest grass . earlier humans were also able to eat grass when there was no tradition or science to eat cooked food .but with the increase of science, humans started eating cooked food while ignoring raw food like grass,leaves. with time,…human's digestive organs that were used to digest raw food (grass,leaves) became extinct.that is y now humans are not able to digest grass (MORE)
The food remnants in the coprolite would tell whether the animal was a carnivore, herbivore, or omnivore. A carnivore's dung would not contain plant matter and would likely have bone fragments. An herbivore's dung would probably have some amount of undigested plant fibers left in it. An omnivore's w…ould probably have a combination of plant and animal remnants, unless it had only eaten one of those recently. (MORE)
Flamingo's are pretty because they have awesome pink feathers. They get the awesome pink feathers from the color of the food they eat. :D
Scientists can examine the contents in coprolites. If they containbones, teeth, etc., then they can determine the animal was acarnivore. If they contain only certain minerals that can be tracedto plants, with no bone, teeth, etc., they can determine the animalwas more than likely an herbivore.
Flamingos are mostly carnivores as they feast on crustaceans, particularly bone shrimp, Artemis salima, etc.)Marked as bad question as the author should learn how to spell and ask proper questions that require more than 150 characters to answer.
A cow is a herbivore because it eat plants exclusively. A lion is acarnivore as it eats meat exclusively. I, on the other hand, notonly eat meat, but may have a salad, fruit, too. So I am an omnivore.
