Although the Flamingo from Schleich® WILDLIFE is a big bird, it can still fly.
The chewing gum pink bird might need your help and a good run-up, but then it glides through the air like a pro! Its long pink legs make it a balancing master – whether in deep water or on a balance beam. A match for every ballerina.
Pink? Purple? No, definitely pink! That’s what colour of the Flamingo from Schleich® WILDLIFE. At first, before it is fully grown, the feathers are still grey. Then they turn this chewing gum pink from the shrimp that it loves eating. Preferably for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Even with a full belly, our exotic wild bird can fly well as long as it has a good run-up. It can also balance incredibly well on one leg. No gym lessons are required! All the other birds always want to be photographed with it. What about you?
Fun Fact: In water, flamingos usually stand on one leg so that both feet don't get cold.
