Prepare to meet the so-called Lamborghini of Poultry. This is the Ayam Cemani Chicken of Indonesia. It’s a rare breed of chicken, and you can probably see why. Everything about it is black: plumage, beak, tongue, legs, toe nails, even its meat, bones, and organs! The only thing that is black is its blood – though it comes in a very dark shade.

Have you ever been so hungry you thought to yourself: ‘I could eat an entire planet!’ Yeah, I sometimes get that too.

Some kids have all the luck. While most of us grew up sharing a room with a sibling – or if you’re lucky, you had your own room – this kid has his own room AND a secret treasure room! A few years ago, Sarah Goer and her husband discovered a hidden storage space when they moved into their home. They decided to turn it into a secret room, or as their son likes to call it, a Secret Treasure Room. But the timing wasn’t right, seeing how no 2-year-old could have any use for an extra room.

These stunning photos show the deathly beauty of the Portugese Man-Of-War

By Milo Sumner in New Photography on Tuesday 26 August 2014

The Portugese Man-Of-War is well-known for its deadly sting, but there is a whole other side to the creature rarely seen. Ex-US military combat photographer Aaron Ansarov has been collecting stranded man-of-war on a Florida beach in order to study and photograph them. Rather than a single organism, a Man-Of-War is actually a colony of smaller creatures that are genetically identical, highly specialised and band together to create a larger and more complex being.
