A player riding the Flamingo.

For the decorative furniture, see Lawn Flamingo.

The Mollusk Whistle is a mount-summoning item that summons a rideable Flamingo mount. It can be purchased from the Zoologist for 20 after 25% of the Bestiary have been unlocked (131 entries).

The mount allows players to float in water, similar to using an Inner Tube, and dive by holding ▼ Down. The mount bobs to the surface when the ▼ Down key is released, and if deep enough, the player will launch out of the water into the air.


  • The top running speed of the Flamingo is Desktop version 31 mph / Mobile version 36 mph.[1]
  • The Flamingo raises the player's height from 3 to 4 blocks.
  • It reduces fall damage by 80%.[1]
