Post The Riddler



I will post a riddle and the person who answers correctly gets Karma and posts the next riddle. You can source the riddle from anywhere you like.


Give hints as you see fit..

(However)

Do your best to not Google for answers, use your brain and wit...

================================================

Riddle # 1

At large in a pond, attract mass in the ring
Find me in circus, see me in the zoo
People think I'm your average pink thing
Yet we know that's not exactly true
When it comes to balancing
You know whom to bestow the crown to

Correct...!!! The next one is all yours... K on the way..


Answer

A flamingo.

Many are pink, but healthier flamingos should be red, showing that they are not famished (have enough carotenic food) and bills (baby flamingos) are white.

The one in the circus is the ring/hoop that is on fire where trained animals (usually lions) do tricks by jumping in/through.

---> Flaming "O"

Either way, both flamingos and the circus trick show exceptionally good balance. The bird sleeps on one leg to preserve body heat, and you need to practice hard and be really skilled to (train animals to) do the tricks.

I am a 6 letter word.
Letters 6-5-2 spell out a drink.
Letters 4-5-2-3 spell out a fruit.
Letters 1-2-6 spell out a pet.
Letters 3-2-6 spell out a pest, which often gets eaten by 1-2-6.
What am I?
