Does a Greater Flamingo hibernate?
No,Greater Flamingos like all Flamingos do not migrate. They do, on the other hand make a small distance migration, meaning that for a period of time they will not be in a certain area.

Hibernation is when an animal goes to rest for the winter season to stay warm. Not all animals hibernate. Hibernating results in a deep sleep over a period of time that limits bodily functions. Many forest animals such as bears, deer, owls, and other warm blooded animals stock up on fat by eating… tremendous amounts of food. Once they have enough body fat to keep warm and survive during the winter season, they hibernate. Only one animal is known to actually go into a deep sleep and not hibernate, the grizzly bear - its bodily functions do not slow as happens in hibernation, but it has special bidy functions instead. Hibernate means that a animal stocks up on food and then sleeps throughout winter. Hibernation occurs in mammals like bears and squirrels during the winter, where they store food in the fall, and then sleep throughout the entire winter season, and wake up in the spring. Otherwise, the mammals wouldn't be able to find their food in the winter, and hibernation makes them sleep and not get hungry, and slows down their heart rate and the need for food untile spring. Some species of animal hibernate during the winter, meaning they enter sort of a low-cost sleep state. They metabolize nutrients stored during the fall more slowly, keeping a lower body temperature, and breathing more slowly. It's a way to conserve energy during cold weather, instead of eating more in order to combat the cold. Hibernating means when an animal sleeps in winter and wakes up when the weather gets warmer. when it gets to cold some animals such as bears,snakes,salomanders and more go to sleep in winter and awake in spring. The animals basically store food in body to last during winter. It is a whole process of temperature. Many animals do not hibernate because they can survive the long winters. ( Full Answer )
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.

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.
Abiotic factors that are helpful to the survival of flamingos are afavorable temperature and climate. They also need water.
No, flamingos that live near high mountain lakes and in northern climates, migrate to warmer places when it gets cold.
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. ( Full Answer )
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. ( Full Answer )
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. ( Full Answer )
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.
Yes, although because of their awkward proportions, it is difficult for them to take off.
The size of a flamingo depends on the species. The greater flamingostands between 110 and 150 centimeters tall. The lesser flamingoaverages 80 to 90 centimeters.
According to Biologists, flamingos serve an important role inbalancing the ecosystem by maintaining control of theoverpopulation of algae. FlamingosÃ¢?? diet is blue-green algae andsmall shrimp in lakes.
the color of flamingos is purple and giant red poka dots. some are also brown with small pink poka spots.
The flamingo has only one natural defense, and that is escape. At the first sign of danger, a flamingo will take flight, and all the other birds of the flock will follow suit, taking to the sky. This makes them difficult targets for natural predators.
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. ( Full Answer )
hibernate means stand by HIBERNATION is a state of regulated hypothermia undergone by some animals to conserve energy during the winter. to pass the winter in a torpid or resting state to be or become inactive or dormant
It is called a flamingo because it comes from a Latin word called Phoenicopterus ruper , that means pink colored organism.
They can turn their head upsidedown and pump water back and forth. You can only see their black feathers when they fly. They stand on 1 foot to change body temp. They will march around when walking at times.
If you can't get out of hibernate, you (most likely) have a serious problem. Obviously you tried to turn it back on with the power button, so that can't be your problem. Try the Hard Drive in a different computer (the one you asked this question on) and see if it boots up. If not, take it to someone… you trust to fix it, whether it be a friend or a company. Friends are always much better. Next time, don't put bears in the tag. That would be considered near spamming. ( Full Answer )
Hibernate is an object-relational mapping (ORM) library for the Java language, providing a framework for mapping an object-oriented domain model to a traditional relational database. Hibernate solves object-relational impedance mismatch problems by replacing direct persistence-related database acce…sses with high-level object handling functions. Hibernate is free as open source software that is distributed under the GNU Lesser General Public License. Rather than utilize bytecode processing or code generation, Hibernate uses runtime reflection to determine the persistent properties of a class. The objects to be persisted are defined in a mapping document, which serves to describe the persistent fields and associations, as well as any subclasses or proxies of the persistent object. The mapping documents are compiled at application startup time and provide the framework with necessary information for a class. Additionally, they are used in support operations, such as generating the database schema or creating stub Java source files. Hibernate's primary feature is mapping from Java classes to database tables (and from Java data types to SQL data types). Hibernate also provides data query and retrieval facilities. Hibernate generates the SQL calls and relieves the developer from manual result set handling and object conversion, keeping the application portable to all supported SQL databases, with database portability delivered at very little performance overhead. Mapping Mapping Java classes to database table is accomplished through the configuration of an XML file or by using Java Annotation. When using an XML file, Hibernate can generate skeletal source code for the persistence classes. This is unnecessary when annotation is used. Hibernate can use the XML file or the annotation to maintain the database schema. Facilities to arrange one-to-many and many-to-many relationships between classes are provided. In addition to managing association between objects, Hibernate can also manage reflexive associations where an object has a one-to-many relationship with other instances of its own type. Hibernate supports the mapping of custom value types. This makes the following scenarios possible: . Overriding the default SQL type that Hibernate chooses when mapping a column to a property . Mapping Java Enum to columns as if they were regular properties . Mapping a single property to multiple columns Persistence Hibernate provides transparent persistence for Plain Old Java Objects (POJOs). The only strict requirement for a persistent class is a no-argument constructor, not compulsorily public . Proper behavior in some applications also requires special attention to the equals() and hashCode() methods. Collections of data objects are typically stored in Java collection objects such as Set and List. Java Generics can be used in Java 5 and higher. Hibernate can be configured to lazy load associated collections. Lazy loading is the default as of Hibernate 3. Related objects can be configured to cascade operations from one to the other. For example, a parent such as an Album object can be configured to cascade its save and/or delete operation to its child Track objects. This can reduce development time and ensure referential integrity. A dirty checking feature avoids unnecessary database write actions by performing SQL updates only on the modified fields of persistent objects. Hibernate Query Language(HQL) Hibernate provides a SQL inspired language called Hibernate Query Language (HQL) which allows SQL-like queries to be written against Hibernate's data objects. Criteria Queries are provided as an object-oriented alternative to HQL. Integration Hibernate can be used both in standalone Java applications and in Java EE applications using servlets or EJB session beans. ( Full Answer )
Greater Flamingos live in stable or growing populations throughoutmuch of Asia. Those populations that live in the colder northernregions of Asia migrate to the coast of India to spend the winter.This can be a journey of several thousand kilometers.
Flamingos live in warm climates and inhabit the edges of lakes and swamps where they can eat shrimp, algae, and other small creatures that live in shallow water.
Yes greater flamingos migrate to India. It is the state bird of Gujrat in India !
Over 1 million are alive today. No one knows for sure because everyday about one new one is made, and some die.
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.
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.
Due to the weather, the food is also more plentiful, giving them all the more reason to migrate. secondly,they are now adapted to flying elsewhere for the winter, and it is very hard for them to change their routine now.
Bilbies do not hibernate. Most Australian marsupials do not hibernate. Only the Mountain pygmy possum is known to hibernate.
Hibernate nothing but persisting the data or saving the content nonvolatile. Hibernate methodology convert the database queries to object,perform the operation and persist the result.
No!! Hamsters are not true hibernators. Hamsters like to be in the range of 65 75 degree Fahrenheit. If the temperature drops below 40 degrees Fahrenheit they may go into a temporary hibernating state. This temporary hibernating state is called torpor: Torpor is a form of dormancy that is very simil…ar to hibernation. But the difference between hibernation and torpor is how long the animals sleep times vary and how much the animal's bodies slow down. Torpor is a state of regulated hypothermia in an Endotherm: An Endotherm is an animal that is capable of maintaining its body temperature above the temperature of the external environment. Torpor may last just a few hours but usually no more than a day. Some mammals that live through cold periods when food is hard to find especially very small mammals have the ability to let their body temperature drop. Hamsters can go into this hibernating state and they have retained the ability to do so in captivity. A true hibernation is a state of dormancy that allows an animal to conserve energy during the winter months when food is in short supply. During hibernation animals slow their metabolism to a very low level, this allow them to use their energy reserves stored as body fat at a much slower rate. If you have a hibernating hamster in this sleeping (torpor) state it may appear that all life is extinct in the hamster and it may appear to be life-less (dead). It will not respond to sound, handling or touching. A hibernating hamster will curl up into a ball in the nest, this is to conserve heat in the abdominal region. You will be able to pick the hamster up without him knowing it, and will not wake up on handling. But close observation will reveal the hamster's whiskers (vibrissae) are still twitching. The hamster still has to breath when in torpor, although very very slowly this can be seen on close observation. The hamster must be aroused by slowly warming and gentle handling and stroking. After the arousal period it may be noted that hamster will be little groggy and trembling this will last only for a very short time.Thanks for listneaning and if u dont understand basicly the temperature needs to be 15C+ or it will hibernate and die and i knoe that because it happend to me enyway good luck ( Full Answer )
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
1. In winter, the northernmost colonies of greater flamingos in Asia will migrate south to the warmer coastal areas of Iran and India. Most other colonies will over winter if the weather stays mild. But these birds will move on if the weather turns bad.
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.
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.
The greater flamingo nests in colonies that often contain thousands of birds. Male and female birds build the nest together. The nest is a mound of mud, 12-20 inches in diameter, and, despite the circular trench the birds construct around it, the nest and egg are often destroyed by a rise in water l…evel. . A single egg is incubated alternately by both parents for four weeks. The chick is fed on regurgitated liquid called crop-milk. It begins to feed itself after a month, although the parents continue to feed it as well. About this time the chick joins other young birds in a group called a creche, taking 10 weeks to fledge (grow feathers). Young birds are grayish brown in color and gradually become white and pink, They attain their full adult plumage at three to four years of age. . ( Full Answer )
"Greater flamingo" is the common name for the species Phoenicopterus roseus. Originally, these birds were also known by the name Phoenicopterus antiquorum , reflecting the fact that they are both an Old World species and one of the earliest known to Western scientists. They have also previo…usly been classified as one of two subspecies of Phoenicopterus ruber --one being the New World species Phoenicopterus ruber ruber, or the Caribbean flamingo, and the other being Phoenicopterus ruber roseus, or the greater flamingo. However, later taxonomic work revealed that there were enough differences between these two "subspecies" to merit considering them distinct species. Sources: Kear, J. and Duplaix-Hall, N. 2010.

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.
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
