This cute little chick struggles up, staggers, falls back down, and gets back up again! At which point it’s time for an indifferent world (in the form of a parent flamingo) to crush him back into the dirt. It’s tragic and yet adorable.
Flamingos are weird birds. Take their legs, for example. What most of us think of as a flamingo's knee is actually it's heel. What looks to the casual observer like an ankle is actually the beginning of a flamingo's toes. They're also prone to perching on one leg, and sport bright pink plumage.
