A cute flamingo pun can be hard to come by. So, we've collected 30 of the best, quirky puns about flamingos to make the whole family giggle.

There is no confirmed reason why flamingos stand on one leg. Some scientists believe its to help them conserve heat, maintain their balance while they sleep, or help them run away quickly from predators. The most likely reason you may see a flamingo on one leg is because it helps them to conserve heat by keeping their leg close to their body.

Flamingos can run at a speed of up to 13 miles per hour! In the wild, they generally live in a large flock, known as a flamboyance and may have up to a million flamingos in a flamboyance. Although these birds look cute, a male pink flamingo can grow up to five foot eleven inches tall (almost two meters).
