A series of animals with all sorts of bizarre natural deformities ;)
The Kangaroo Rat
This weird little rodent gets its name from its huge cheek pouches, which extend back to its shoulders; it fills them with food or nesting material to take back to the burrow, emptying the pouches by turning them inside-out with its front paws
The observation platform, located in the crown of the Statue of Liberty was closed to visitors since September 11, 2001. This platform will be reopened for visitors on Fourth of July this year. In the meantime, a small group of journalists was allowed to go and have a little peek. A photo report is after the jump.
