Russian miniaturist Anatoly Konenko has been creating miniatures for thirty years now. He invented his own technology on writing on rice, poppy seeds, as well as human hair. He has recently created the world's smallest aquarium with live fish. This tiny tank is made of fibreglass and there are living algae on the bottom. There is even real fish there, which size doesn’t exceed 4 mm.
A kitty in Chongqing, China, is getting some extra-special attention these days: The furry feline has developed wings! Though born looking completely normal, once the cat hit the age of 1, he began growing wing-shaped appendages on either side of his spine, the U.K.’s Daily Mail reports.
While some think the bony limbs may be a mutation of some kind — or even a Siamese twin growing inside the cat — others speculate it’s a genetic change perhaps caused by chemicals ingested by the kitty’s mother while she was pregnant. Scientists believe the appendages developed due to grooming habits, a genetic defect or a hereditary skin condition.
