What makes the flamingo awesome

Flamingo fashion: What makes a flamingo so awesome?

They’re everywhere at the minute aren’t they?



Lilos, mugs, slippers, sunglasses, umbrellas, phone cases – we’ve all gone flamingo fashion crazy, so much so that we’ve decided to bring out an adult version of this…



Not really – tempted though!


But what makes them so cool?


We decided to do some hard-hitting research to find out ( slash – we fancied mucking about a bit and finding out funny weird facts about flamingos one hot and stuffy afternoon.)


Here’s our favourite flamingo findings…


  • There’s six different species
  • The word comes from the Spanish and Latin word ‘flamenco’ meaning fire.
  • They can swim
  • They can fly as fast as 35 miles per hour
  • They only lay one egg a year
  • A flock of flamingos is called a stand, colony, regiment or a flamboyance!
  • Chicks are born grey or white
  • An adult’s legs can be 50 inches long – longer than their entire body.
  • They can live up to 50 years old
  • OK ready for this one…its “knee” is actually its ankle. The real knee is very close to its body and is really hard to see.

Final fact – there’s more plastic flamingos in America than real ones. We reckon after this year we won’t be far behind.
