The Mollusk Whistle is a mount-summoning item that summons a rideable Flamingo. The Flamingo 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 Mollusk Whistle can be purchased from the Zoologist for 20 GC after filling out 25% (135 entries) of the Bestiary.


  • While riding the Flamingo, the player gains +5 Fishing Power while touching the liquid.
  • The top running speed of the Flamingo is 31 mph.[1]
  • The Flamingo raises the player's height from 3 to 4 blocks.
  • It reduces fall damage by 80%.[1]
