This is the premiere of a new feature, “Science and Nature Headlines,” where I read actual recent articles on the internet and summarize them, to save you more of your valuable time. The posts to the real links are included:
“Asian Unicorn” Seen in Vietnam for the First Time in 15 Years: When asked where he’d been, the antelope replied: “So we were going to lunch when I said, what, Mexican again?

Why is this giraffe gnawing on an impala skull? When asked , the giraffe replied: “Because I much prefer the taste of the Impala skull, especially the late sixties to early seventies sedan models, to the Camaros and Chevelles. I once tried the skull of a Buick LeSabre, and let me tell ‘ya, I was in the bathroom for a week.”
Strangest genitals on earth: Whew! I didn’t make the list! That’s a relief!
