The short clip sees the chick trying to pick up its little legs several times. Every time, the baby tucks the leg under its fuzzy feathers, it misses balancing and sets the leg back again on the ground, before trying the whole process again.

The one thing that separates flamingos from other birds is their ability to balance perfectly on one leg. However, the creatures aren’t born that way. Like how babies have to learn to walk, baby flamingos too learn how to balance. Now, a wholesome video of a baby flamingo learning how to balance on one leg has gone viral on social media. In the new clip, the baby is standing right beside a bright pink twiggy-leg flamingo, who appears to be its mother.
