Nice looking chicken. It is a Sebright Bantam chicken.

Thanks, Tom. I thought it was a white chicken that somebody had photo-shopped with magic marker :/ .

...Hens produce tiny white eggs, but they are non-broody and unreliable as layers.

So, each and every Sebright Bantam is precious and probably wouldn't be here without human intervention. And I think that would be a shame, because they're quite pretty looking :) .

Kiwa hirsuta - The Yeti Crab - is a crustacean discovered in 2005 in the South Pacific Ocean. This decapod, which is approximately 15 cm (5.9 in) long, is notable for the quantity of silky blond setae (resembling fur) covering its pereiopods (thoracic legs, including claws). Its discoverers dubbed it the "yeti lobster" or "yeti crab". (Wiki)

Just think it's pretty...and wish I had one, though it would freak out the cat.

This taxidermy was found inside a late 19th-century French mansion which has been sealed up for more than 100 years. Via National Geographic.
