horn comb

3

Artie, a Shetland pony at the Retreat Farm in Brattleboro, VT, was the best unicorn today! His forelock just happened to be thick enough to braid into an impromptu-horn - the hair is so coarse, it stayed up all by itself. After his glamour shoot Artie’s horn was combed back out and none were the wiser.

Bearded Chicken Breeds-Dutch Owlbeard

The Owlbeard is a very old, if not the oldest, Dutch poultry breed dating back to the early seventeenth century. It appeared in many paintings from Old Dutch masters. They have no wattles and instead we find a beard and muffs, which cover the “chin and cheeks.” They also have a very striking horned V-shaped comb.  The eye color is brown-red and the earlobes are white. The color of the beak depends on the color variety. This also is the case with the leg color, which is white pinkish for the Cuckoo variety, light blue-grey for the White and slate blue for the Golden Spangled variety. The Owlbeard is known in Black, White, Black-laced Blue, Cuckoo, Golden and Silver Spangled, Yellow-white Spangled, Golden Pencilled, and Silver Pencilled varieties as well as the so-called Moorhead. The latter is known in White, Blue, Golden and Buff varieties with a totally black head.

Did you see that a newly discovered fossil species (of predatory cow-type things, I think) got named after Padme Amidala? Xenokerys amidalae- because they have elaborate head decorations.

For Israel Sánchez , a researcher at the National Museum of Natural Sciences , CSIC, the key goal of science to which it is dedicated it is to reconstruct the past the group of ruminants , a group of animals highly adapted to eating plants and that the past was represented by a range of higher than today species. From this Thursday, you can say that is one step closer because he led an investigation has identified a new relative of giraffes.

The research was published Thursday in the journal “PLoS ONE” .
This animal had a “horn” comb-like T-shaped, and could be described as the result of a cross between deer and giraffes. It belonged to the lineage of paleomerícidos, which in ancient Greek means ruminant. From today, it named after Xenokeryx amidalae , (“ strange horn Amidala ”), in honor of the Queen of the Star Wars saga that Israel Sánchez is amateur. Anecdotes aside, this new species can better understand the past of ruminants and in particular the giraffes.
