How Do Flamingos Stand on One Leg - Even When They're Sleeping?

1 post in this topic

Story at-a-glance

  • When standing on one leg, flamingos engage in a "passively engaged gravitational stay apparatus" to support their weight while using hardly any energy
  •  
  • Even dead flamingos could stand perfectly balanced on one leg, but not on two, without any support or muscle activity
  •  
  • Flamingos are able to stand on one leg with very little, if any, conscious or muscular effort involved
