Unicorns, Fact or Fiction

When you hear the word unicorn, what do you think of? If you're hungry, you may think of corn, the ubiquitous yellow vegetable. If you’re like most people who have already ate today, you probably imagine a horse with a horn.

A horse with a horn. Haha. Nonsense. Impossible. Never. Unicorns are merely animals of either tame, or wild and perverse fantasies.

But what if I told you, there was a time that unicorns and people roamed the planet at the same time! And that these unicorns did not look like what you typically imagine when you think of unicorns, single stalks of corn. Rather, they kind of looked like fluffy rhinos. If this intrigues you, check out this article from  .

Funny Cartoon Animal- In Real Life!- Mickey Mouse

The most infamous mouse on the planet. Mickey Mouse made his first appearance in 1928's Steamboat Willie. Why he isn't called Willie the Mouse, the world will never know.

Rodents. Some keep them as pets. Pet mice aren't too terrible.

However, some can be a bit mechanical.

Muscovy Duck

Hello all. Today we will be taking a moment to admire the majestic Muscovy. This creature is one of my favorite ducks! The photos truly do not do it justice (like my selfies).

The Muscovy is originally native to MexicoCentral, and South America. Not unlike Toyota automobiles, the domesticated Muscovy comes in a variety of colors; Black, Blue, Chocolate, Pied (white with any color mixed), White, Lavender, Bronze, Ripple and many more pastel colors, but these are very rare.

However, the true wild Muscovy duck, from which all domesticated Muscovys originated, is blackish, with large white wing patches.
