Yes flamingos do sleep on one leg.
How long can a walrus stay in Jamaica?
For round about 2-4 hours! Impressive,or what!
Because if they didn't, they would fall down.
No one is really sure why flamingos stand on one leg. Scientist aren't even sure why flamingos stand on one leg. But one thing that has been proposed is that flamingos stand o…n one leg to relieve the pressure off the one side and res that side while the other side functions and controls the body. Then when that side has rested then they will alternate legs and do the same thing until they are fully rested and ready to go on about their business.
no they do lay down. Answer . They don't lie down, they sleep stood on one leg, this helps blood circulate around the body due to it's very thin legs. Some other birds are t…he same.
Let's say you were outside on a very cold day and all you had on was a short sleeved t shirt. What would you do to keep your arms warm? My guess is you'd hug them as close to… your body as possible so as to keep in the heat. Well, that is exactly what a flamingo does. By tucking one leg in close to it's body,it's able to stay warmer in cooler weather
The flamingo is often associated with the state of Florida. However, the flamingo is not the official state bird of any US state. The flamingo, like the coconut palm, is no…t indigenous to the United States.
Flamingos eat large quantities of shrimp. .....Not. They eat Spirulina -- a species of algae found only in a few lakes in Africa, the main one being Lake Tanganyika, which …is the second- largest freshwater lake in the world. Spirulina has a HUGE amount of carotenoids in it (several versions of vit A that make carrots have their orange color) which is why flamingos are pink. It is a very nutrient-dense food, and is one of the few foods that is considered to be 100% nutritionally complete. In other words, an animal can survive solely on spirulina -- and that is exactly what flamingos do. There's NO way the person who first answered this question could honestly mistake algae for shrimp...they are not even in the same Kingdom of living organism...my sincere recommendation: do not answer questions if you aren't sure of the answer. You might get someone in trouble.

1. I believe its one FOOT 2. Why do you care? 3. Because of the polarity of magnetic influence of the world pulls them to one side, thus the need not to stand on the other leg….
Flamingos stand while they are both awake and while they are sleeping. Flamingos sleep on one leg with their head tucked under a wing. The leg locks into position.
Flamingos stand in the water because they eat shrimp.
Aside from being pretty in pink, one of the flamingos' most famous characteristics is standing on one leg! Nobody knows exactly why flamingos like standing on just one leg …so much, but scientists have a couple of ideas. The most likely reason is that it helps the beautiful birds to stay warm and conserve body heat . Because they stand in water a lot of the time, flamingos are likely to lose body heat faster than those of us who don't spend a lot of time standing in water. Using just one leg lessens the amount of heat they lose to the cold water. Some other ideas about why they stand on one leg include preventing tissue damage or germs that they might pick up from the cold water they stand in, and preventing their muscles from getting tired by using just one leg at a time!
