Gibraltar has monkeys. they are not monkeys they are primates!! they dont have tails monkeys have tails, primates have no tail. so the new answer is Gibraltar has primates.
Live flamingos are supplied bu International Flamingo Services; have a look at their website link below.
The best place to live will be Great Britain. Northern California (north of the central valley), Oregon, andWashington will also be ok . These areas currently enjoy relatively mild summertimetemperatures, and cold (but not brutal) winters. If currentprojections are accurate, temperatures in this r…egion may increaseby approximately 5 degrees Celsius during the coming 25-50 years:growing seasons will be a bit longer, and the adequate waterresources should still be sufficient (unless increasing quantitiesof water are diverted southward). (A very important comment about the above answer and a truly BESTplace to live during global warming is cited below) In all reality, there will be no truly stable areas sustainable forlarge communities located on continental land masses. As the globalsystem absorbs more energy, the thermal highs and lows in a givenarea will become far more prominent, areas such as northernCalifornia and up into Southern Washington will experience onaverage a bit higher temp but on the temperature swings they willexperience extreme cold snaps and extreme heat waves also, thusdestroying much of the growing seasons with the extreme weatherswings. Perhaps upon the continents a region such as northernCalifornia up into Washington may be "better" than othercontinental regions, but it certainly is not the "Best" place to beon our planet, not by a long shot. Keep in mind we are dealing with gases (air), liquids (H20, water),solids (soils) and finallyâ¦ radiant energy (sunshine). We arereally talking about a system that is being charged with moreradiant energy than is familiarly normal and in this case we've anoutcome that equals additional heat. We need to consider heat basedsystems, thermal absorption and transfer. A continental environmentdoes not represent the best of all places to be during such anevent. Not by a long shot. Continental environments contain more solids (soils) and solids arenot thermal transfer friendly as they are really considered thermalinsulators. The two best mediums for thermal transfer are found inone particular condition of matter - fluids. Of fluids, liquids(like water/H2O) are far better at transferring thermal energycompared to the other form in the state of gasses (air/ouratmosphere). The ocean plays the biggest role in keeping a stable globaltemperature. Without itâ¦ we'd all be dead very quickly. Thus theanswer lays in the most responsible product for keeping globalthermal stability; the ocean. Obviously we cannot live in the oceanwithout a submersible structure, but, we can certainly surroundourselves by it upon natural land masses. The more ocean and deepwater you can get around you with a substantial island under yourfeet and the closer you can get to one of the two tropic latitudes,the better off you're going to be. The BEST place to be located is upon the larger remote Islandswithin the deep oceans near the equator or even better situatednear the tropic lines. Hawaii is a prime example as to why suchremote islands will weather best for their human inhabitance. Thesurrounding ocean and its surface water temperatures will helptremendously in stabilizing the lower elevation atmospherictemperatures within comfortable levels. Consider Florida forexample, with temperatures that often reach 100F+ while at alatitude further north than Hawaii. Where Hawaii experiencesextremely stable year round temperatures in the 80's near oceanelevations all the while being situated far closer to the equatorwhere the atmosphere should theoretically be hotter than Florida.Florida is surrounded by vast shoal (shallow) waters and thereinlays the dilemma. These perfect conditions in Hawaii are due to several factors.Hawaii experiences more moderate and stable temperatures because itis fully surrounded by deep remote ocean waters and because it hasa near stable exposure to the sun all year round. The deep watersmix with the warmer surface waters of the sun about the islandeffectively cooling the warmer waters and keeping the island coolerduring the day in the sunshine. Whereas during the evening thewarmed surface waters continue to heat the lower elevationatmosphere via evaporation keeping the air moderately warm duringthe evenings. Thus Hawaii has a near perfect natural thermalcontrol system built into its environment that fits human needs tonear perfection, whereas no such place can be found in acontinental environment. Hawaii has two fairly stable factors, a near stable solar exposureand a stable deep ocean temperature. The surface waters about theisland are locked between two opposites in energy absorption andtransmission and we've a greater mass (water) in fluid dynamics toconsider. The averaged outcome is experienced and enjoyed by thelower elevation inhabitance of the island. Global warming will have less influence on the temperatures inHawaii and far greater influence on continental land masses.Hurricanes/Typhoons may become more prevalent in Hawaii but nonethe less, because of its remote location, such storms will alwaysbe less likely an extreme threat comparatively to the extremes thatwill be manifest on and around the continental environments. Granted things such as reefs may experience some magnitude ofdemise, but the growth of food on land and such will always besafer and yield far greater variety of crops on an island such asHawaii vs. a continental region in a global warming trend. There isno good place to live from global warming except on another planet. (MORE)
Kind of a circular answer to your question, I'll admit, but Earth is the only place we can live because it's the only place we evolved to live on. Life, over the course of the last three or four billion years, evolved to become increasingly sophisticated, and more and more dependent on the natural p…henomena characteristic of Earth -- the level of gravity, the presence of liquid water, the presence and composition of the atmosphere, the amount of sunlight we receive -- even the tilt of the Earth's axis, which is the cause of our seasons. In order for us to survive anywhere else in the universe besides Earth, we would either have to find another planet that very closely matches the conditions we find here, or manufacture an artificial environment that provided those conditions.

They live around the coasts and lakes of the south eastern US. Flamingos live next to shallow water. They eat algae, shrimp, and other creatures that live in shallow water.
It depends on the languages that you speak - but three places I'm considering are the following for the following reasons. 1/ Panama - Tax Free living, good health care, English spoken, friendly people. Low property prices. 2/ Cebu in the Philippines - Low cost of living, rated 8th best city in …all of Asia, English spoken, very friendly people. Low property prices. 3/ Hawaii - In the USA, developed, island life, good health care but high unemployment. Higher property prices than the others. Obviously, much will depend on whether you are at retirement age, nee to work, or if you're married or single and looking for a life partner...So the rest is up to you. (MORE)
No, they inhabit the edges of lakes and swamps where they can eat shrimp, algae, and other small creatures that live in shallow water.
Flamingos live in rain forests. Flamingos live in all types of rainforest environments, and are on the endangered species list.
Flamingos inhabit the edges of lakes and swamps where they can eat shrimp, algae, and other small creatures that live in shallow water.
All snakes need heat. They have no way to regulate their own temperature and therefore they need external heat in order to digest their food.
In their native lands, flamingos are found on every continentexcept for Australia and Antarctica. Chilean, Andean and James'flamingos live in South America. The greater and lesser flamingoslive in Africa. Greater flamingos can also be found in the MiddleEast and India. Many zoos have built artifici…al habitats for flamingos. (MORE)
well they live in every where and they live in nests and there very rare if you see them around
Flamingos are not the only birds containing pink. Since they are not born or do not intrinsically develop into pink birds, they obtain their pink pigment from their diet. The more carotene their diet contains, the more vibrantly pink their bodies become. The related link includes a short list of o…ther birds that contain the color pink. (MORE)
it totally depends on what you mean by warm but in deserts they are mainly cold blooded reptiles but otherwise there is mammals with no fur on them like the naked mole rat
\nYes. The word tropical refers to fish that live around islands and places that are hot, they do live in warm places.
Yes, flamingos live in large flocks for protection from predators; large groups make it difficult for predators to pick out one individual and the movement of many birds together can be confusing.
No. Australia and Antarctica are the only continents which have nonative flamingoes. There are, however, flamingoes in Australianzoos.
Flamingos are found in Africa, Asia, North America, CentralAmerica, South America, Europe, and Russia. They inhabit the edgesof lakes and swamps where they can eat shrimp, algae, and othersmall creatures that live in shallow water. Flamingoes are indegenous to four contients. Thereare 4 species to… be found in South America, and 2 species to befound in the Old World (Africa, Europe, Asia (including India)). They inhabit the edges of lakes and swamps where they can eatshrimp, algae, and other small creatures that live in shallowwater. yes Flamingos live in a large flocks a flock may have many hundreds of flamingos. Flamingos can be found in SOUTH AMERICA , AFRICA and EUROPE it can be seen in INDIA in month of November to March Flamingos are found in Africa, Asia, North America, Central America, South America, and Europe. They live near lakes or muddy water where they can find shrimp and algae to eat, which is their food source. (MORE)
Amazingly, Huskies are, like many other mammals, easily acclimated to any climate you put them in. It may take some time if moving from Alaska to Florida. This may require a more watchful eye for some time after moving. Heat stroke, heat spots, and any other kind of illness caused by heat. Other tha…n that, there should be no problem. (MORE)
No they live under rocks but I've had one under wood. They'll always have a warm place in MY heart...
When people think of warm climates and beaches, they usually think of California and Florida. However, these are some of the most expensive states to live in and are definitely not cheap, which eliminates them as an option. Texas has a very warm climate, as its along the gulf, which means it also ha…s beaches. Texas also offers cheap housing, and the houses can be quite large. Granted its most likely more expensive on the coast than anywhere else in Texas, living a little bit inland wouldn't be that big of a deal, as you could still easily commute to the beach. However, Texas probably looks like the best bet. (MORE)
Why flamingos live in colonies you say? Well flamingos live in colonies because they all might want to protect each other.
Flamingos can be found in tropical and subtropical climates. Their habitats include saline lakes, estuarine lagoons, mangrove swamps, and tidal flats.
Flamingos can be found in Peru, Africa, Asia, North, Central, and South America, Europe, and the Bahamas, and Caribbean Islands.
That all depends on the monkey. Monkeys live in both cold and warm climates although most monkeys live in warm climates.
\n \n\n. all reptiles are cold blooded unlike mamles which are warm blooded, the olny way to keep reptiles warm is to bask in the sun. (lay in the suns heat) \n. If rattlesnakes lived in cold places they cold die of the cold easily.
Something about the way they digest food, the color comes from proteins found in their diets. Well fed healthy flamingos will be brighter, and the paler ones are malnourished.
Yes because China has a large variety of bamboo, which is pretty much the main food source for pandas. However, if you are referring to pandas kept in zoos, there are some of them in other countries. If you find a wild panda living in anywhere but China, inform me as soon as possible.
Cactus's are thrifty plants that live in dry regions. They may not get much moisture where they live, but they manage to make the most of what they do get. Since the cactus's long roots lie close to the surface of the ground, they can catch water from desert rains. And since the roots have a cork…-like bark covering them, they can absorb the water quickly. n addition, the plant's sharp, pointed needles keep desert animals from sucking out this valuable liquid. However, cactus plants have saved the lives of thirsty people stranded in the desert. (MORE)
a flamingo can live on its own but people can have them as a pet or people can have them at a zoo
The biggest threat to a flamingo's life is being killed, stuffed, and put in a front yard to celebrate Unlce Al's birthday
nope.. remember the snow tigeeeeeeeeeeeeer!?

Flamingos can be found in North America, South America, Africa, Europe, Central America, and Yugoslavia.
All flamingos are found in tropical and subtropical areas. The flamingo's most characteristic habitats are large alkaline or saline lakes or estuarine lagoons that usually lack vegetation. Lakes may be far inland or near the sea. A variety of habitats are used by flamingos: mangrove swamps, tidal f…lats, and sandy islands in the intertidal zone. (MORE)
No, a flamingo needs a special diet and feeding area, you can not keep one at home.
The only known warm blooded animals to live in Antarctica are thetemporary workers in support of science and the scientists whostudy the health of planet earth on the continent. Otherwise, sea mammals breed on Antarctica's beaches, but maketheir homes in sea water.
This question doesn't have a simple 'yes' or 'no' answer. Some do and some don't. Some foxes live in the desert where it warm most of the time. Some live in places where the seasons change significantly and so the foxes have adapted to deal with both severe heat and severe cold. Other foxes, such as… the arctic fox, live in very cold climates. (MORE)
Platypuses do live in warm places, but they also live in cold places. Platypuses are found in a variety of temperatures and climates, from the cooler sub-alpine areas in the south, such as Victoria and the Tasmanian highlands, north through New South Wales to tropical far north Queensland. They can… survive extremes of heat that occur in Victorian summers as well as the cold winters. Platypuses live in bushland as well as tropical, sub-tropical and temperate rainforests. (MORE)
i'm not exactly sure why... maybe people are interested in them? also, they do live in groups, and in areas with water. i mean why not?! lol.
The Greater Flamingo usually lives around the age of 60, if healthy. The oldest living flamingo was 77 years old.
earth has the right atmosphere, whereas the other planets don't but there could be a chance there was life on mars and there may be another universe with planets that have life, it is not scientifically proven but we may not be the only living, other planets may have life too anon x
They usually move into your mom's basement. What do you think?!? They live with other flamingos!
Koalas are found in a range of temperatures. \nThey inhabit southern Victoria, where winter minimum temperatures easily drop to just a couple of degrees Celsius (0 degrees is freezing point) but summer temperatures exceed 36 degrees Celsius on a regular basis. \nKoalas also live in the north, where …temperatures range from 12 degrees Celsius to 35 degrees and sometimes higher.

The short answer is: near the water! But there are four types (species) of flamingos that live in the Americas, and two types that live in the Old World. See the related Wikipedia link listed below for more information:
Yes, they live in temperate tropical waters. They also love to reside in coral reefs, sea grass and mangrove forsts beneath the surface of the ocean. You are welcome!
No animal 'lives' in Antarctica. However, many sea birds and seamammals visit the continent's beaches to breed. There are no cold-blooded animals that thrive in the Antarcticregion.
So that the live wire is isolated when the fuse blows. If a fusewas placed in the neutral, the equipment would still be live whenthe fuse blows.
Flamingoes are both old world and new world birds. There are species that live in Africa, southern Europe and parts of Asia, and species that live in South America and the Caribbean. These birds developed naturally in response to their enviroments. They have long legs, flexible necks and strainer-…like beaks in order to feed on small animals, such as shrimp, that live in shallow lakes and marshes. Because of their special shape and attributes, they can take advantage of food sources that other birds cannot easily access. (MORE)
In the modern age yes, however in the past they also lived in arasthat were cool and had woolly coats to help them keep warm.
They have long, thick fur, so in a warm climate, a Husky wouldbecome over heated, which could lead to the dog's death.
