Thank you, Jack Hanna

While watching Good Morning America this morning, I learned an interesting fact. That's good, because it's fun to learn something new.

Jack Hanna, Director of the Columbus Zoo here in Ohio, was on Good Morning America with baby flamingos. They were cute. They were shorter than the adults, and had cute downy gray feathers. The interesting fact came in when one of the reporters said something about their knees that go backwards. I, personally, have always found that interesting about flamingos. (That and the fast that they have pink feathers because of the food they eat.) Well, Jack Hanna said that those are actually not their knees, but it is their ankle.

Am I the only person who didn't know this? I shared my new bit of trivia with my sister and husband, and they both looked at me like I was a bit crazy. Maybe I am. Or maybe I just have a secret obsession with flamingos (or Jack Hanna).
