You'll never guess where flamingos hide their erectile tissueRobbie Gonzalez8/20/12 9:20am13EditPromoteDismissUndismissHideGo to permalinkFlamingos 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.
