A butterfly is born male on one side and female on the other. A pioneering transplant scientist sews a second head onto a dog. A showman makes a series of goats into unicorns. A chicken lives for a year-and-a-half without his head.

Outside of a science textbook, biology can be disturbing. Nature can create mutants, and scientists can practice ethically ambiguous and failed experiments. But the study of life is also beautiful and rife with important narratives.

Through this collection of strange stories and images, you will see the most fascinating side of biology. You will read about scientists trying to revive the extinct, and people who care for mutants. You will find bizarre histories and the truth behind myths.
