Can anything share habitat (or at least tolerate) living with flamingos?

I'm making my first inexpert attempt at creating a nice walk around marsh/wetland area and will have flamingos in it - is there anything else I can put in the area that would have both guests and flamingos 'free walking' in it? Tempted to try caimans - heh - but I think the birds would be unhappy.

And following - any easy to access listing of animals who like to live with other animals? I've already got pronghorn and bison living together.

Koala and Kangaroo do rather well together, you have the Capuchin, Tapir, and Anteater, and there's the savannah horde. I think those are the rest of the groups that gain bonus' for putting them in the same exhibit. African Elephants can be added, but don't add the bonus.
 
Most of the real zoos I've been don't put flamingo with other animals. I've seen multiple flamingo species being together though. I think they're fine by themselves.
 
Not sure how common in real life zoos, but I have seen alot of people make shared habitats of flamingos and hippos.
 
Technically, if you don't really care for 100% (terrain/plants) welfare or play sandbox anyway, you can put anything together that doesn't wanna eat each other. In some career zoos (mostly the eco one I think) I threw together flamingos, hippos, tapirs, elephants and orangs to save time, water and space, and aside from the mentioned terrain and foliage issue they were perfectly fine. So yeah, if you don't care about it beeing 100% realistic you can put all the plant eaters together xD
 
My local zoo actually has flamingos mixed with a small primate species. The small primate is in the corner and only stays on branches it doesn’t have access to a spot by the flamingos. I guess in game you could combine them with a binturong if we eventually get one or a tortoise species. The idea would be the binturong would mostly stay in arboreal spots of the habitat and wouldn’t usually come in contact with the flamingos. I thought I seen a YouTube video combining them with hippos. I’ve seen Pygmy hippos combined with mandrill but they didn’t seem to get along very well.

As you can see the aggression between them. The male mandrill seems to actually bully them quite often.

You can put the pygmies and flamingos together, just not with the guest walk through
 
Hello, you can just attach a railing to the path and the guests can walk through the habitat and look forward to being so close to the animals. However, they should build a bridge or tunnel for the animals and staff to walk on both sides of the way.

In my zoo they are in one habitat with the Hippos and Pygmy Hippos.
 
My Theory yesterday turned out to be true that it is possible to keep them together with the Gharial. Finally my old Gharial found a Home☺️

I always put my flamingoes with hippos since ZTC day one. They seem to be happy. I also have two big savannah habitats and in one of them are antelopes, hippos, flamingoes etc. all together.
