Weird science

Okay, I know I'm supposed to be working and not blogging, but I couldn't resist posting these three bizzare items for your enjoyment (and not a single one features an interspecies friendship!)

1. New crustacean discovered: the white, fuzzy Yeti Crab. Don't think I'll be eating one of these anytime soon.

2. Speculation that the famous photo of the Loch Ness Monster was actually the trunk of a swimming elephant.

3. The missing link? Probably not, but five members of this Turkish family are quadrupeds (translation: they walk on all fours). Apparently their parents did not read Middlesex and were therefore unaware of the genetic risks associated with incest. Marrying a close relative is bad, mmkay?

I saw the family on the news. Gross and bizzare. All I thought about was walking the streets of Boston or New York City like that. Gross! Who thought walking on all fours was a good idea.
