      Hey! Great question. A flamingo can stand on its leg for as many as twenty minutes, if not more in some cases. They can sleep standing on one leg too!!! Which I definitely could NOT do 😉

      Maybe once I’ve answered a few of these questions I’ll give it a go and see how long I can do (not sleeping!). Do you want to try too and let me know how long you can do it for?
