Flamingos stand on one leg,but no one knows why.Do you ?
I don't know.Lets go to the lab and find a book about it
I found the book it's called ''All About Flamingos''.Hopefully we will find out more
Flamingos have balance aids built into their bodies, the new study finds.
The balance aids in their body helps them balance on one leg .Balancing on one leg helps them save energy and escape predators.
There is also some information from an experiment in the book,let's read it.
I guess that's why flamingos stand on one leg .
As a bird stood on one foot ,the instrument tracked changes in the foot’s center of pressure.This spot wobbled around as a bird shifted to preen.
When birds were dozing, their center of pressure moved within a radius of 3.2 millimeters (0.1 inch),on average. That center of pressure expanded to 5.1 millimeters when the birds were active.
Let's go back to the beach!
Sadly we can't balance on one leg for long but at least we figured why flamingos do it.
