Flamingos feed on small shrimps, insects, algae, etc., so they inhabit the shallow waters of temperate and tropical saltwater lakes, swamps and lagoons. They like to live in groups, often more than 10,000 in groups.

Fossil evidence indicates that the ancestors of flamingos began to differentiate 30 million years ago, much earlier than most other birds. Fossils of flamingo footprints about 7 million years ago have been found in the Andes.

The feathers of a flamingo are mainly vermilion red, like a blazing fire. The slender neck is curved in an "S" shape, and there are a pair of slender and long red legs. It is a unique and beautiful bird.
