Fancy Pigeons

These fancy pigeons have curly feathers only  on the brown wings, not the white body.  I am fascinated.  I've seen chickens with curly feathers before, but always over the whole body.  It makes sense that the wing feathers could be coded differently because they aren't the same as the body feathers, but I'd never seen the curly gene split like this before.  I fucking love science.  :D

  • Read "Humans Are Weird"

    I've seen "Deathworld Earth" pieces before, but this one is longer and funnier.

  • Monkeydactyl

    A newly discovered type of pterodactyl had opposable thumbs that it probably used to climb trees and grasp prey.
