Wonderful World of Animals

I know I have some friends with interests in science, and biology, so I figured I would share this, in case they hadn’t read it in the journals to which they subscribe.

Ananova, back in June, reported on a miraculous event in China. A dog gave birth to a kitten! (link contains photographic proof!)

Hua Chengpeng, of Huayang village, Jiangyan city, told People’s Daily that the unlikely animal was the third ‘puppy’ in his pet’s litter.

“The first two puppies the dog produced were both normal, but when the third baby came, the whole family was very surprised to see a cat-like creature. It is a cat, not a dog at all,” he said.

Local residents have been flocking to his house to see the ‘kitten’ which local vets say is really a puppy which looks like a cat because of a gene mutation. It apparently yaps like a puppy.
