Flamingo Friday

We are not sure the average life of a flamingo. One has been on record to have lived as long as 44 years! Larger birds are usually the biggest threat to flamingos. The eggs and chicks are attacked bymany types of vultures and storks.

In some places in the world, flamingo eggs are
sold and eaten as a delicacy. In Roman times
they even ate the tongue of the flamingo!

Aw, a little rubber flamingo for the bath. Gotta get me one to keep my little rubber devil ducky company.
