What does flamingo eat?
Flamingos eat several different things. Some things they eat are brine shrimp, small insects, fish, red algae, and green algae.
Flamingos eat small fish like anchovies and shrimp. Flamingos are actually white or grey, but the shrimp they eat turns them pink. When a flamingo loses its feathers it eventu…ally turns white or grey. A baby flamingo is born white or grey, but it gets pinker as it gets older. They eat shrimp and some anchovies, as well. (It is the shrimp that accounts for the pink color of flamingos.) They eat plankton, tiny fish, fly larvae, small shrimp, and anchovies.
Flamingos live in areas with shallow water beside lakes and rivers where there are few predators. Their most common predators are birds of prey such as eagles and hawks passin…g over. The adult flamingos are not in danger from such predators because of their large size, but their chicks are and they must stay near and protect their chicks. Baboons eat flamingos. watch the video on youtube.

whit there beaks
They eat shrimp and some anchovies, as well. (It is the shrimp that accounts for the pink color of flamingos.)
Flamingos have these plates on the edges of their beaks, called lamellae. The flamingo dips its head upside down underwater, and all the water and underwater organisms and p…lants rush inside the lamellae. The flamingo then presses its fleshy tongue against the inside of its bill, forcing the water out, leaving the insects and plants inside the lamellae, which the flamingo will then be able to eat.
They eat at restuarants like us LOL that's how the question was worded. But i get you they eat in their habitat or any body of water where fish and bugs are. I got that off …a commerical plus you always see flamingos in water! -EAgamer999
yes you can eat the flamigo, we eat it on a regular basis here in the UAE, there are a number of excellent outlets here that specialise in the delights of the flamigo. the fla…migo meat, especially from just under the wing is very pork like, which has a captive market here. ask your local butcher for a flamigo, it isn't a very popular bird in most of the world but i believe it is readily available these days and can be sourced without too much difficulty. favourite flamigo dishes would be flamigo fajita, flamigo paste, crispy flamigo and smoked flamigo.
any predator that can catch one
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.
Flamingos eat small life forms that are found in shallow waters
Flamingos eat small insects, plankton, tiny fish, algae, crustaceans, and fly larve using their bills. When and how much food they eat is dependent upon what species of flamin…go they are and they type of filtration system in their bill.
