Brief Summary

Read full entry


Flamingos are long-lived, reaching up to 50 years old. They breed together in colonies, between December and February (2). Usually only a single egg is laid, and breeding success appears to be low (2). Flocks of flamingos are a stunning site and may be partly nomadic, searching for their inconsistent food supply of algae (2).
