OH NO! found this in this morning news. A rare unicorn is nearing extinction. Ponee one of your cousins is in dyer trouble.
http://news.yahoo.com/elusive-asian-unicorn-faces-extinction-001801255.html


This month marks the 20th anniversary of a spectacular day for
zoologists. Two decades ago, in May 1992, scientists announced the
discovery of a new species — the saola — living in the lush mountain
forests that straddle the Vietnam-Laos border.

It was the first large mammal discovered since the 1930s.

Yet celebrations are muted in light of the elusive species' plight; the
saola, also known as the "Asian unicorn," is likely fast disappearing,
conservationists warned in an announcement today, and they say there
could be only 200, or even as few as just several dozen of the animals
left on the planet.

The saola is a small, horned animal that resembles mysterious-bearded-antelope-photographed-in-kenya.html]a strange antelope hybrid, but is more closely related to a type of wild cow.

Vietnamese scientists first identified the new species only through the
bizarre, horned skulls that villagers living near the animal's range
had collected.

Stark markings on the face, long, graceful horns and a tufted tail lend to the animal's mystique.

But according to Barney Long, an Asian species expert for the
conservation organization WWF, the creature got its mythical moniker
more for its habits than its looks.

"It's so rare to see that it would almost be like seeing a unicorn," Long told OurAmazingPlanet in 2011, when a asian-unicorn-saola-reserve-vietnam.protected area for saola was created in Vietnam.

These secretive ungulates wander the steamy green forests of South
Asia's Annamite Mountains, where poaching is rampant. Although saola
themselves are not prized in the wildlife trade or for their meat, many
of their neighbors are.

"Saola are caught largely as bycatch — like the tuna and dolphin
scenario," William Robichaud, coordinator of the Saola Working Group,
said in a statement.

And although the rare creatures are caught and killed by snares,
scientists have never observed them in the wild. The rare saola that has
been captured alive has quickly died.

"When they're in captivity, they seem to act extremely tame, and
they're very open to having people come up to them and touch them," Long
said, but explained that their sweet demeanor is likely a sign of
extreme stress. "The animal is freaking out," he said.

Conservationists said it's encouraging that saola are not a direct target for poachers, and offered hope that the /11382-10-species-kiss-goodbye.html]critically endangered animals can be saved.

"But we still need to act," Robichaud said. "One of the rarest and most
distinctive large animals in the world has been quietly slipping toward
extinction through complacency."


See there, for all you would be doubters...They really do exist. Just like green M & M's lol!

Well it may be funny, but it's also kind of disgusting. Listen, Ponee, I think you need to tape another horn to your forehead so they won't realize you're a unicorn. We do NOT want our Ponee ending up as unicorn spam! affraid One of Ponee's unicorn cousins is in trouble 927261665 One of Ponee's unicorn cousins is in trouble 2359006407

Actually thinking about it a bit longer ... the horn's pointed in the wrong direction too! I guess it's a revbicorn

Looks like a goat to me...and the 2 horn thing is odd. Maybe it's a biacorn.
