This video shows the two towned mutant lobster caught off Rhode Island. One half is normal lobster color and the other half is black. Pretty strange looking to have such a clear cut line turn up naturally I'd think.
Here is a photo of a duckling with four legs which poped up on the most emailed photos on Yahoo. Apparently the duck was discovered in England at a duck farm. The two extra feet don't seem to be as correctly formed as the normal two feet of the duck. Hard to tell if the extra legs are usable or not as well. Makes you wonder what they feed ducks in England and are they down river from a nuclear power plant to get their extra mutant on.
Here is an article about a mutant dolphin which was caught recently that had four flippers instead of the 'normal' two. I've circled the two extra flippers in the photo to the right. The flippers look normal but other dolphins don't have them and only a few times previously have four fins been recorded on dolphins. The article claims dolphins use to be land animals millions of years ago and these fins are a left over trait from that. Additionally grow leg buds before they are born but they disappear before birth. So there you have it. Mutant dolphins for the win.
One of the top most emailed photos on Yahoo right now is this photo of an albino alligator which is currently on display at the Los Angeles Zoo. Apparently there are only around 30 known albino alligators in the world in a population of around 5 million alligators. They are albino because of a genetic mutation where they don't produce melanin which is what gives them their normal color. Additionally albinos don't last long in the wild because they don't have their normal protection from predators and the sun according to a second article on the subject.
A farmer in Japan who has been growing tomatos for 30 years recently grew this giant mutant tomato which he says looks like a Chinese lion mask. Apparently the mutant tomato is about three times normal size at 10 cm across and weighting 150 grams (or about a third of a pound). So is the farm down wind from one of the nuclear blasts from WWII or possibly getting water from one of their nuclear plants. Next thing you know they will clone this mutant tomato and it will be a delicacy in Japan like square watermelons.
So the most emailed photo on Yahoo for the last few days has been this photo of a giant rabbit named 'Robert' from Germany. Major news sites are pairing this photo with a story about a giant rabbit eating vegetable gardens in the UK which really has nothing to do with the rabbit in the photograph. So what is this "rabbit breeder" doing with the bunnies anyway? Meat? Fur coats? Pets? In any event that is one huge mutant rabbit which leads us to another site in the UK called "British Giant Rabbits" where they have a photo which claims to be of the biggest rabbit in the world.
So the most emailed photo on Yahoo for today was this photo of a lamb which was born with six legs in Belgium. This fits right in with all the other mutant animal photos (remember the two headed snake and the one eyed kitten). So is the farm where this lamb was born down river from any nuclear power plants, in the fallout path from Chernobyl, or is this just random mutation? Is a lamb with six legs a better all terrain vehicle than a lamb with four legs? Would you eat the meat from a lamb that had six legs?
We posted a photo of a puppy with green fur before but up for today is the photo of the glowing green pigs. Mutants for the win. Some scientists in Taiwan adding some jellyfish DNA to pigs which made green and glow in the dark. There is a second photo of the pigs in the day where you can see how "green" they actually are. They aren't dark green or anything like that. The "pinkness" of the pigs instead looks "greenish" and they glow in the dark. The point apparently is to be able to inject the green stem cells into regular pigs so they can track the green genetic material or some such.
And the video we have for your today is of this two headed snake. As far as I can tell the snake doesn't move at all during the entire video so it's possible that the thing is dead. The tail doesn't move and neither head flicks it's tongue. It looks like they have this two headed snake at some kind of snake showing convention because there is another guy with a giant python around his neck in the background near the end of the video. Chalk this one up with the two headed turtle and the five legged frog.
Now there is a face only a mother could love. This is currently the most emailed photo on Yahoo. It is of the first captive bred "aye-aye" to be born in the UK. The aye-aye is a aboreal nocturnal lemur but if you ask me it looks like a long haired mutant rat that has been drinking to much radiated water. Apparently the aye-aye is the largest nocturnal primate in the world. Frankly this thing is just plain weird looking. If fact it kind of looks like Dobbie from the Harry Potter movies.
