Where Flamingos Flock In The Wild
While a majority of people will only ever see flamingos in zoos, there are some places around the world where they live freely in the wild. As illustrated by the above map, these wading birds tend to favor Africa, Europe, tiny parts of Asia, the Caribbean, and the southern tip of America.
Fun fact about flamingos: these birds tend to stand on one leg, but no one really knows why. It’s thought that they stand in such a way to retain body heat, as their long, skinny legs spend most of the day wading around in cold water.
