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. (MORE)

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.
Cnidarians are carnivorous, feeding mostly on zooplankton but also on small crustaceans, fish eggs, worms, smaller cnidarians, and even small fish. . For the source and more detailed information concerning this subject, click on the related links section (Answers.com) indicated below.
they use they nose to smell seals under water Bears hunt or fish to get food. They wait at streams to catch fish,or they will even rummage garbage cans and picnic areas in nationalparks.
By grasping its testicles around the food with its suction cups and sucking it up.
They usually eat fish or scraps of food they can find. They like sea food -- prawns and other sources of fish. Their beaks are shaped so that they can sift-feed brine shrimp and blue-green algae.
One could find a pink flamingo in Africa, South America, or Argentina once it reaches maturity. Another place would be the local zoo if interested in seeing one in captivity.
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. (MORE)
It is called a flamingo because it comes from a Latin word called Phoenicopterus ruper , that means pink colored organism.
They get their food by sticking their head in the ground almost using their beak as a drill and getting food from the ground,somtimes they stick they beak in water. They eat by putting its head upside-down into the water looking backwards. It takes in water that is rich in tiny organisms and filters… nutrients from the water with a comb-like organ on its tongue.

nationalgeographic.com tells some information on the flamingos weight and some info. on other things as well. what I've seen on there is that they weigh about 8.75 lbs (not counting the little chicks).
A Flamingo eats brine shrimp and blue green algae, plants at the bottom of a river or pond and other little fish and creatures on the sand bed floor. The flamingos feathers are pink because brine shrimp bare reddish orangey colour. A flamingo will sooner then be eaten by ferel pigs and other large a…nimals. Hope that helps. :D (MORE)

A Flamingo feeds on Brine shrimp and blue-green algae, the flamingo had pink feathers because of it's diet, the shrimp. Flamingos will then be eaten by bigger predators like wild dogs and ferel pigs.
i'm not sure but base on my studies flamingos eat only the algae.. .. .. ..hope my answer help u :D :'(
Usually flamingos find and mate in the water. The female will lower her head and the male will jump on her back while the female spreads her wings. Flamingos dont always breed each year. Sometimes they can breed up to two times in one year.Usually when flamingos reach about six years old, they beg…in to breed. (MORE)
Crocodiles spend a lot of time laying in wait in the water, readyto ambush a passing fish, or an animal going into the water. Duringthe annual wildebeest migration, crocodiles will gather at thecustomary river crossing places, waiting to catch a wildebeestattempting to cross the river. By crossing i…n huge numbers thewildebeest ensures that quite a few manage to reach the other side. (MORE)
Domestic horses find their food in their feed trough. Horses living in the wild usually live where their can find food meaning places where grass grows.
look at the back of it or go on the internet n search for it lol
They go around and with the atteni one of them is used to find food and one grabs it and takes it and puts it into its mandibles!! :)
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 v…it 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. (MORE)
They find their food by using their nose. Bears close to humans tend to eat at the garbage dump. Deeper in the bush they eat berries, grubs, roots etc.
Any store. You just have to look for a kosher symbol like an o with a u in it. That means a Rabbi made sure no non-kosher ingredients went into the product. Many Wal-marts and Shoprite carry Kosher food.
usual place is in a supermarket, or if you want fresh food, either make it your self or for fruit pick it off tree or where its habitat is.
Dolphins use there mouths to eat food but i do not know how they find food and anyway buddy me i am Kitty97380 PLEASE BUDDY ME
well it depends on what kind of jungle it is, you can eat eat edible plants and all kinds of fruits that grow on the trees. if theres a lake or river you can also eat fish.
They look for there food at the bottom at the ocean. Also seahorses mostley eat plankton, small fish, and dine shrimp.
It depends on the religious denomination of the "Praying Mantis". Different religions not only have designated places to seek food, but also, the type of food that the Praying Mantis may eat. I believe Hermosa Beach, in California has a Homeless Mission for the Praying Mantis; however, the food… is for consumption "in house", NOT for "take-out"! Not sure if it's still there, as this was back in 1999, when I lived in the area. (MORE)
Cougars can be found in Canada, the United States, and in some countries in South America. They are able to eat almost any animal that they find, from mice and squirrels to elk and deer.
a bluebird flies hundreds of miles before getting there food. this consits of berrys and food you put out for them.
they can move haha, they crawl along the ocean floor and eat the little stuff in the sand. or if they find a body (ex) dead fish, they eat that. =P
When I get tired off with the same routine food then I try new type of food.
A food chain shows how each living thing gets its food. Some animals eat plants and some animals eat other animals. For example, a simple food chain links the trees & shrubs, the giraffes (that eat trees & shrubs), and the lions (that eat the giraffes). Each link in this chain is food for the next… link. A food chain always starts with plant life and ends with an animal. . Plants are called producers because they are able to use light energy from the Sun to produce food (sugar) from carbon dioxide and water. . Animals cannot make their own food so they must eat plants and/or other animals. They are called consumers . There are three groups of consumers. . Animals that eat ONLY PLANTS are called herbivores (or primary consumers). . Animals that eat OTHER ANIMALS are called carnivores . . carnivores that eat herbivores are called secondary consumers . carnivores that eat other carnivores are called tertiary consumers e.g., killer whales in an ocean food web ... phytoplankton â small fishes â seals â killer whales . Animals and people who eat BOTH animals and plants are called omnivores . . Then there are decomposers (bacteria and fungi) which feed on decaying matter. These decomposers speed up the decaying process that releases mineral salts back into the food chain for absorption by plants as nutrients. (MORE)

With Katniss living in such a poor neighbourhood, she has learnt and had no choice but to either hunt for food or starve.. Katniss likes hunting and creating snares to catch rabbits and other small animals. She can climb and use her bow and arrow with high skill.
Vitamin K is not found in food but rather is produced by the micro-fauna that inhabits your intestines. Studies on Vitamin K were first done by destroying the micro-fauna in the guts of animals and observing the symptoms they developed - like hemophilia.
Spider monkeys forage for food. In some species, there are designated females that leave the main group to find food, and lead the rest to it. Where necessary, the large social groups of 15 to 30 split into smaller groups and spread out to avoid fighting over the same food. Where food is plentiful, …they may stay in the same area for months or years. Otherwise they will relocate to be nearer to food sources. (MORE)
I am not quite sure but it does have something to do with a wolf I am guessing...ð I am bored
Read the labels on the food package, also, chicken, turkey, beef, fish, beans are strong in protein.
they go to the grocery store and find were the meat is and find the one that looks like it has been hit by a truck.
food chain....... i am not sure but they eat...... . Blue, Green, Red Algae . Larvae from Incests . Crustaceans . Mollusks . Small Fish Hope that Helps
Yes. Flamingos' pink coloration derives from pigments called carotenoids, which are the basis of red/pink/orange coloration in a variety of animals. These pigments cannot be generated by animals, but originate in photosynthetic organisms (plants, algae, some fungi and bacteria) and are then passed f…rom one species to the next via the food chain. There are 5 major carotenoids found in flamingos, coloring everything from their egg yolks and livers to their feathers and preen oil: echinenone, canthaxanthin, phoenicoxanthin, astaxanthin, and phoenicopterone. The 6 species of flamingos get their carotenoids from different sources, as a result of the fact that variations in bill morphology allow the birds to access and ingest different-sized prey items. These include diatoms, brine-shrimp, plant seeds, mollusk larvae, and, in particular, cyanobacteria such as Spirulina. Although these foods do not look pink on their own, they contain carotenoids that flamingos metabolize and express in their tissues. If you see pictures of young flamingos, you will notice that they are whitish-grey, rather than pink; you may also notice that there is quite a bit of color variation even among fully-grown adult birds. Depending on the species, flamingo juveniles do not start expressing their pink coloration until they are 2-4 years old; adults' pink coloration varies according to how many carotenoids they consume and how healthy they are. When flamingos were first held in captivity, keepers had a hard time maintaining the birds' pink color because they were stressed and not eating natural diets. Commercial food mixes were eventually developed, but not until keepers had tried a variety of other solutions (sometimes successful, sometimes not), including mixing carrot juice in with the flamingos' food and water.

Wet wet wet and more wet like ponds or small streams or in a humid hot wet place no cold places like the north pole .
FLAMINGOS can eat so diff. from humans. They can fly which is also what a human cant do either.
They poo it out I am not kidding. Added by Dr. Misha: uh, yeah, pooing comes After Digestion, which, technically, is the breaking down of food into nutrients which are capable of being absorbed by the body. Without exception, in all birds digestion starts starts in the crop, an organ in the thro…at. Since birds have no teeth (again, without exception), they need a way to break down food into particles that are small enough to pass through the alimentary canal. Most birds eat small stones or bits of gravel, which they store in their crop. When food is swallowed, it first enters the crop, where it is mixed with the gravel in order to be broken down, the same way our teeth pulverize food, before travelling through the rest of the GI (gastro-intestinal) system.
