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 passing 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. ( Full Answer )
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 biggest danger to flamingos is loss of habitat areas due to human encroachment and pollution of the water they depend on for food. ( Full Answer )
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.

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.
a predator in the sense that it strains small organisms out of water by means of its unique bill. prey as i have seen video of a jackal, and an eagle taking them.
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 )
When they fly, flamingos run a few steps into the wind; the flock will fly in formations that take advantage of the wind currents. When flamingos fly, they take several steps and take off into the wind. The flock will fly in formations that take advantage of the wind currents.
They catch the food by putting their heads down, putting their beaks in the water upside down, and using their beaks to extract spirulina, which are definitely not shrimp (they are blue-green algae--not even the same Kingdom). Flamingos do this using bristle-like structures in the mouth as a filter,… opening and shutting their beaks very quickly to move the water in and out of the oral cavity (mouth)--the same way a baleen whale catches krill, which ARE little shrimps. Easy, but not simple. They use their beak to catch shrimps out of the water. Easy. NOT They eat a special algae that gives them their pink color (because it contains high amounts of carotenoids). The algae is named spirulina, which is renowned as a very healthy "whole food"nutritional supplement, and can be bought in health food stores. ( Full Answer )
It is called a flamingo because it comes from a Latin word called Phoenicopterus ruper , that means pink colored organism.
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 plants 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.

Also tenacity Pink flamingos in Africa, have two lots of chicks in a row while this is taking place the lakes they live on dry out. Often before the time the second lot of chicks reach adulthood the lakes… dry out .when this happens the only chance for survival is for the parent of the chicks to walk them over a hundred miles of desert to get to enough water for them to survive. Out of 50,000 chicks at the start of this trek some times none of them make it. Often the chicks become weighed down with mud that get stuck to their wings until they get so heavy that they cannot walk anymore. Some years, not a single chick makes it across the desert.

Both! It is a prey because it eats shrimps and other crustacean's, but they don't have any real big predators, but they could be a prey.
no but they have small comb like things called lammelae that strain the tiny food they eat! i am awesome

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.
