Science gone wrong with Exotic Creatures

Updated on February 2, 2015

Overview

There are many animals on earth today. Most of them live on land while others live in water. As learners, we have always been thought that animals are reproduced either by sexual reproduction or asexual reproduction. After birth, young animals are nurtured by their parents or parent during early stage. In this article, I will be discussing the unusual circumstances surrounding the mishap with some exotic creatures. The intricate design of nature on exotic animals makes them stand unique among other members of the animal kingdom. Lets look at few examples: The double headed bald eagle, the four legged bird, the elephant with 2 tails, the lion with 2 horns, half cat-half dog creature and the bull-like creature with 4 horns.

Animal variation

Our society are very curious about creatures appearing unique. Throughout history, science has always shown us one way or the other that it is never 100% accurate in duplicating living beings. There is always some degree of error. Sometimes, certain variables that are not accounted for occur during reproduction. How do we control that? We can't especially when we are unaware that certain variables are present and will result in a distinctive offspring. All these creatures above were not monitored during fertilization and possibly during birth. The same principle applies to human fertilization. We rarely monitor egg fertilization in humans unless there is known medical issues in question. Most of us know about the conjoined twins. Monitoring probably occurred during ultrasound or after birth, not at cellular level.

Poor Predicton

Can you explain why these animals appear the way they do? Well, may be you can, may be you cannot. It is very difficult to guess the complete outcome of these creatures prior to birth because it was never expected. In spite of the poor prediction of the status of the creatures, there is still a rational and full scientific explanation for the uniqueness of the exotic creatures.

Postulation

An animal physical trait can result from its genetic makeup and the influence from the environment it lives in. In terms of variability, a part of variation in physical characteristics of an animal is caused by the differences between their genetic variation. Some of these creatures probably undergone some sort of unusual cellular changes resulting in different breed or different appearance. Due to the effect of varying cellular biological division, some of the animal appear the way they do. The physical features of other members of each of these exotic creatures reveal closer similarity even though the unique appearance of these remarkable creatures distinguish them from others.

Conclusion

With respect to living beings undergoing structural and evolutionary changes, human beings are no exception. During early development especially after conception, young animals are expected to bear most of the physical features of the parent or parents. However, certain unaccountable variable tends to redefine the structural appearance of these beings. These 6 exotic creatures have remarkably revealed that science can sometimes deviate from the norm.
