Is it cute? Is it weird? IDK.

We all have a general understanding of what baby birds look like, right?

But thanks to Twitter user Celesse, now I know that apparently, baby flamingos are a little different. Because this, folks, is a baby flamingo. It's kind of adorable, right?!

It's doing the leg in the air thing and everything!!!!

But like...holy shit, those are some LEGS. Is a baby supposed to be jacked like that?

The body and the legs look so different!!!!

The body and the legs look so different!!!!

But on the other hand, it's SO FREAKING FUZZY OMG.

But then it also bends its legs really weirdly, just like an adult 'mingo. I DON'T KNOW HOW TO FEEL ABOUT THIS.

Turns out, all baby flamingos look like they don't know WTF to think about their anatomy.

And here's one clearly in its angsty teen years, still grappling with it all.

Anyway, the little creature is currently living at National Aviary in Pittsburgh, and it's been getting some fans, needless to say.
