Nessie not the only strange beastie in the highlands



Weird things: The Highlands' unusual animals and plants
A large Eurasian eagle owl has been causing a flap in Inverness. But it is not the only non-native species or unusual creature to have caused a stir in the Highlands and Islands. In 1980, a puma was captured at Cannich, Inverness-shire. It was taken to the Highland Wildlife Park, at Kincraig. Nicknamed Felicity, it spent five years at the park. After the cat died it was stuffed and is on display at Inverness Museum and Art Gallery.

How about this for a design for a wall painting, in the tried-and-true Art Nouveau style?: http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8BWN3L, by the famous English artist, Audrey Beardsley himself. You can also order a canvas print of the picture from wahooart.com.
