Flamingos' Long Legs
Flamingos are a type of wading bird. They live near shallow water. Depending on how long their legs are, the deeper they can wade into water. The flamingos with short legs have to stay near shore. The flamingos with longer legs can move a little more into the water.
Later on, the fish moved out more into the deeper part of the water. There was barely any fish near the shallower part of the water. For the flamingos with shorter legs, it became harder to find their prey. Some couldn't get enough food and died of starvation while the rest of the short-legs struggled to survive. The long-legged flamingos didn't have a difficult time finding their prey. They thrive, still competing for food, but better than the short-legged flamingos.
Soon enough, the short legged flamingos started dying of starvation. The long-legged flamingos survived due to their advantage of having long legs. They are fit for the environment. They had plenty of fish to feed on.
Years later, after all the short-legged flamingos died out, the long-legged flamingos reproduced and had more long-legged flamingos. As time went on, the fish moved deeper into the water, and the short-legged flamingos died out, leaving the long-legged flamingos to reproduce and have more long-legged flamingos. This is how the flamingos evolved into having long legs.
He's dead, Jim.
