Flamingo fitted with prosthetic leg

A flamingo at a Brazilian zoo has been fitted with a prosthetic leg.

The bird had to have part of the leg amputated after it was broken.

Though still limping a bit, the Chilean flamingo is becoming more comfortable with the new leg, according to the zookeepers.

The flamingo has already mastered the curious flamingo speciality of standing on one foot while tucking the prosthetic leg up tight under the pink body.
