This Week at the Animal Farm
A rare two-toned lobster is seen in Bar Harbor, Maine. The lobster caught by Alan Robinson in Dyer's Bay is a typical mottled green on one side; the other side is a shade of orange that looks cooked. Robinson, of Steuben, donated the lobster to the Mount Desert Oceanarium. Staff members say the odds or finding a half-and-half lobster are 1 in 50 million to 100 million.
Willy, a 1-year-old cat is photographed with a display of several pairs of garden gloves that he took from unknown yards in his neighborhood in Pelham, N.Y. Willy has brought home nine pairs of gloves and five singles over several weeks laying them on his owners' front or back porches.
Here's something you don't see everyd, err . . . . ever:
"Cess," short-beaked echidna blows a bubble from her nose while in the care of a zoo keeper at the Wildlife Clinic center at Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia. Cess suffered a broken foot and severe cuts to her nose that required expert veterinary surgery at Taronga Zoo Wildlife Clinic after a road accident.
