It turned out why flamingos stand on one leg.
Flamingos can stand on one leg and after death.
According to a study conducted by experts from Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University in Atlanta, the one-legged posture is forcing birds to expend no muscular energy, and in this position they can fill.
The study authors conducted experiments on live and dead flamingos, and found that the bodies of the birds can stand on one leg without any support.
This phenomenon scientists called the passive gravitational mechanism of standing. In addition, the researchers tried to put the dead Flamingo on two legs, but they didn’t work out: birds lost his balance and fell.
