Polydactyl!? What is that?!

Cats normally have 18 toes, 5 toes on both front and 4 on the back paws. Some cats have a genetic abnormality that can be passed down from parents. It’s called Polydactylism. Ernest Hemingway was a big fan of these kitties, giving them the name “Hemingway’s Cats.” This little black kitten has a total of 32 toes! She has found her forever home already but we wanted to share and educate you on the feline anomaly. It’s quite unique and gives this kitten more character than we thought possible for such a tiny critter. She’s adventurous and fears nothing.

Legless Lizard

A Legless Lizard is a peculiar creature. It looks like a snake, right? Well it’s not!

Food for these guys range from small mammals and bird eggs to invertebrates.  These guys are still able to lose their tail like other lizards too! Don’t worry if your Legless drops it’s tail. It will regrow. Next time you’re surfing the web, check these guys out. X-rays show remnants of hipbones from a time when these guys could have had legs! … Continue reading
