Flamingos can often be seen on the shore of the lake, standing on one leg. The flamingo actually sleeps when it is in a standing position on one leg, but the big oddity is that only half the body of the flamingo is actually asleep, and the half to which the supporting leg belongs is still active.
When the flamingo changes its supporting leg, the other side of the body can rest a little, and the side that has fallen asleep becomes active again.
There are six different kinds of flamingos that have been studied by scientists. One of the most common species is the large flamingo that lives in Africa, Southern Europe and South Asia. Flamingo, smaller in size, is the most numerous type of flamingo and lives in Africa and northern India.
Chilean flamingo is a large type of flamingo, which is common in South America. Flamingo James is a small, elegant kind of flamingo that lives in the Andes mountains in Peru, Chile, Bolivia and Argentina.
The Andean flamingo is closely associated with the flamingo of James and also dwells in the Andes mountains in Peru, Chile, Bolivia and Argentina. The American flamingo is a great kind of flamingo, which is more common in the Caribbean islands and Galapagos islands.
