    I think it's very convenient that it's about the "size of a salad plate". I look forward to the first "kiwa hirsuta" recipes. :)

    That's a very bizarre picture. The fact that it's eyeless leads me to believe those hairs act as sensory apparatus.

    But the researchers haven't said how it tastes (just like chicken?)

    "Discovered living in central Laos ..it's a species believed to have been extinct for 11 million years...Scientists haven't yet a bagged a breathing one, only the bodies of those recently caught by hunters or for sale at meat markets, where researchers with the New York-based conservation society first spotted the creature."

    Mmm, wonder how that would be sous vide?

    Recommended reading: The Ugly Chickens, by Howard Waldrop. Which won a Nebula Award despite not being, in any way that I can see, science fiction.

      "Science fiction is what I point at when I say 'science fiction.'" -- Damon Knight

    It has science. Ornithology is a science. It's fiction. Science and fiction. There you go.* More importantly, it's a wonderful story. It was also nominated for the Hugo Award.

    *Actually, "The Ugly Chickens" fits into the branch of SF known as alternate history.
