Chinese Goose

Also known as the Swan Goose, this once rare inhabitant of Mongolia and Northern China has since been domesticated and distributed throughout the United States. They can crossbreed with the Graylag goose, the most common (and also introduced) goose to be found in North America behind the Snow Goose and Canadian Goose.
I don't care for Geese. They're disheveled, mean, overly messy, and often ugly. These geese also resemble the two-headed dragon monster that Val Kilmer slays in the movie Willow. Don't believe me? I pasted some photos below for comparison. Their attitude matches as well.

    Sorry Laurence, I don't really see the resemblance.

    Also, you have to love the goose in Charlotte's Web:

    Wilbur: "Does anyone know how to spell [terrific]?"
    Goose: " I think it's T double-E double-R double-R double-I double-F double-I double-C, C, C."

  2. Hmmm maybe you have to look at them with binoculars to see the resemblance?
