Transcript of Flamingos- Savannah

Flamingos Food Food and Diet A tall wading bird (family Phoenicopteridae) with mainly pink or scarlet plumage. It has a heavy bent bill used to filter-feed on small organisms. Its four species include the greater flamingo (Phoenicopterus ruber). Definition The flamingos diet includes many small fish such as brine shrimp. Latin Name (Phoenicopterus ruber). Flamingos are naturally redish or pinkish because their diets are so high in alpha and beta carotene. FUN FACT! Ecosystem tropical or subtropical biomes Flamingos also eat many types of algae such as red, green, and blue. Their upper jaw is hinged so they can hold their heads upside down to reach the water and scoop up the shrimp or flies. Niche Habitat Near lakes, ponds, and oceans. Commensalism Symbiotic Relationship Flamingos have a symbiotic relationship with the Morton Salt Company, feeding off the brine shrimp living in the coastal salt pans. Flamingos tend to live in regions that have very little food to offer other animals. As a result they benefit from not having many natural predators. Predators shellfish,algae,shrimp,crabs, mollusks, brine shrimp and insect. Prey Flamingos have long legs. Flamingos also have long necks. They have broad webbed feet. Adaptions to its Enviroment Flamingos have long legs which allow them to stand in very deep water. They have broad webbed feet to stay stable on soft or uneven ground like mud. They have specially shaped beaks. They have long necks so they can reach down into the water to get the shrimp.
