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)
Penguins protect themselves from predators by counter shading.Their black and white coloring can make them hard to see while inthe ocean. They fight each other by grabbing their opponents beakand twisting.
A adaptation for a wasp is flight. Flight is a vital adaptation forsurvival because this enables the wasp to relocate into newecosystems.
No, because they eat small fish. shrimp, algae, and other small creatures found in shallow water. Flamingos are omnivores.
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)

â¢flamingos have long legs, they can wade into deeper water than other birds. Their webbed feet supports them on soft mud and allows them to swim faster.â¢There are many possible reason why flamingos stand or rest on one leg. It allows the leg and foot to dry and it also keeps the heat and e…nergy inside their bodies so that they are able to stay warmer in cooler weather. When you're in the bathtub for a long time, your skin starts to wrinkle,and the same thing can happen to the flamingo feet.â¢ (MORE)
matters how fast you're talking about - in century wise they can change their color, beak shape, drastic changes etc.. week by week wise or longer - slight change in diet, fight or flee reaction, or something like a shock collar: punish or reward it when it does something like standing on one leg a…nd eventually it might not do it at all. really matter on how big a change in environment or whether a human or intelligent beings (aliens!!;)!!!) make it. sometimes in a big change in environment flamingos or any animal might not adapt in time and die out like the dinosaurs; they couldn't adapt in time for its environmental disaster.

puffins use Bernoulli's Principal which is when the speed of air is high the pressure is low, and when the speed of air is low the pressure is high, and high pressure pushes against low pressure and you get lift
Flamingos are uniquely adapted to survive in their wetland habitat. They have long legs and webbed feet which enable them to wade in water, and to swim. The webbed feet support them on the soggy ground of the wetlands, and stop them from sinking into the soft mud. Flamingos are characterised b…y their graceful necks and bills, which are longer than those of any bird of comparable size. These help them to reach for food underwater. Because of their long necks, they can reach down and stir up the mud with their bills find their food. Flamingos also are unusual in that they turn their heads upside down in wart to feed. To this end, they have uniquely structured jaws. The lower jaw is fixed and the upper part moves, which is completely in reverse to those of other birds and mammals. Inside their beaks are tiny bristle-like structures called lamellae which filter out the mud and dirt, leaving just the good food like molluscs, worms, crustaceans and fish. Unlike most other birds, flamingos are not reliant on freshwater. They are able to drink salty water, excreting the salt through glands located next to their beaks. Not only that, they can drink hot water as well. This is a useful adaptation as it means they can stay in saltwater lagoon, drinking from hot freshwater springs when required, and stay away from predators. (MORE)
They have wings and feathers that's why they reproduction in birds * *adapted to demands of flight...*
It is called a flamingo because it comes from a Latin word called Phoenicopterus ruper , that means pink colored organism.
\nLadybugs have folding wings that are protected by a shell. When the shell is lifted, the ladybug extends its wings and begins flapping at a high rate in order to produce resistance in the air.
The skeleton of a bird is adapted for flight because many bones are hollow, making the bird lightweight. Flying birds have chest muscles that move the wings. Finally, feathers help the bird fly. In addition, the bones of a bird's forelimbs form wings. Information from: Science Explorer-Prentice …Hall: Life Science. pg. 407 "Adaptations for flight."Paragraph 1. (MORE)
even though the bird is smaller than its wings, it doesn't mean it weights less then the wings, it weights more than the wings, but the main reason for its flight, is from its bones; the bones are hollow, compared to a human bone, which its filled with a spongy liquidy solid or a non-newtonian fluid… called bone marrow. If we had hallow bones like birds, we could jump really high up in the air. The wings cause an updraft to just "hover" or "propel" itself through the air, the wings are what causes it to move around and change direction. The bones, are what help it stay in the air, and lift off. We can't do that because of our bones, but birds can. (MORE)
Flamingos have very long legs which are an adaptation that allowsthem to eat from deeper water than most other birds. Flamingos canalso excrete salt through a special gland.
blue jays have hollow bones to make them lightweight, and they have a tail to help them them steer up and down while flying.
Because hummingbirds are constantly on the move, they need stronger muscle fibres: their pectoral muscles are made up of almost 100% Type 1 muscle fibres which are better for the bird's endurance
Yes they do. Here are some. Dragonflies have several adaptations to help it survive. One is that it can tip its wings to regulate the body temperature. They also bask in the sun to warm up. Another is that they are bullet shaped, they can fly forward and backward, can change direction quickly, and …can fly 19-30 miles an hour. These can help it evade predators. Yet another adaptation of the dragonfly is that it has huge eyes. Although they cannot move, the eyes still provide good vision. The eyes are made up of up to 28,000 small lenses that the dragonfly uses to see. Another adaptation of this insect is 63% of its weight is made up of muscles. This allows for strong flying. One more adaptation of the dragonfly is that a sticky substance surrounds the eggs. This is useful because if there was none, the egg mass could come apart and flow down a stream. The substance keeps the eggs together and holds the eggs to an anchor. Those are some adaptations of the dragonfly. Source(s):http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20081215154440AAMaYD9 (MORE)
It's light, streamlined so has low resistance to air. Also light-weight bones with air holes in them which are connected to the lungs.
Hollow bones are an adaptation for flight because the weight ofsolid bones would make it difficult to fly. They are lighter andmore flexible than solid bones.
Birds have many flight adaptations. Among these are keel-shaped tails to help with steering, an aerodynamic build, and mostly-hollow lightweight bones. Birds have high-powered breathing systems.Birds have hollow bones.
Butterflies have strong mucles in their thorax that help them push air above and under their wings in order to keep aflight.
Blue Jays have broad, fanning wings that allow them to turn quicklyin their forest habitat. However, they cannot fly swiftly in openspaces. Like other birds, the Blue Jay has very light bones thatenable flight. The Blue Jay's wedge-shaped tail can be fanned opento allow quick stops and turns mid-fli…ght. (MORE)
Birds have hollow bones so they are lighter for flying. They have contour feathers so they are can remain steady. They also have a keeled sternum which is an area for flight muscles to attach
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.
the birds ' wings and feathers grew when thus before their bones were hollow or light.
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.
The birds feathers are used for, insulation , this is for when they fly and when thier on the ground, it also helps pretect the skin, from getting damaged.
It eats apples daily for the best of nutrition and its heart beats twice a day. This slow heartbeat enables it to lift off the ground and hover.
Ducks have adapted greatly by learning to get out of the water quickly and start flying.
Survival, Food, Competition with ground animals, have their nests higher up, and to spot that booty from afar. That booty is righteous.

its an adaption to flight cause' a birds bones r filled with air and are EXTREMLY LEIGHT like a feather so that they can fly easily and quikly without being weighed down by their bones
All have adaptations to some extent. However in some cases they are insufficient to allow flight. Ostriches cannot fly for instance, though they have wings. It can be argued that penguins 'fly' under water.
1.For birds to be able to take flight or fly high enough and still obtain enough oxygen, the birds have air sacs. 2.(Air sacs are membranaceous receptacles which communicate with the cavities of the respiratory organs passages, and can through be filled with air.)

Fireflies have a lightweight oval body with wings these help theinsect fly. They also have a shell that protect their wings whennot in use.
The bones in their wings are hollow- unlike humans and other organisms. Plus they have these special feathers that are really long and help them fly. If those feathers are clipped, then the bird can't fly- but it can jump only a few feet. If you go to your local vet/pet store( the local pet store wh…ere I live clips the wings) and ask them to clip your bird's wings, then you yourself can see where they are. Or you could just ask them. ^^ (MORE)
Strong muscles, lightweight - hollow bones with air holes in them which are connected to the lungs (this increases lung function), arms and hands made into aerofoil wings, feathers which are waterproof and interlock.
The lack of teeth or a heavy bony jaws reduces a bird's weight even further.

FLAMINGOS can eat so diff. from humans. They can fly which is also what a human cant do either.
No they are not because there are different birds throughout the world and they might adapt to flight differently. Birds have different wing-shapes that reflect their flying-style. For example vultures have large squarish wings to get the maximum benefit from thermals, while gulls have long narro…w wings to reduce drag and hummingbirds have wings that provide lift on both the down- and up-strokes.
