This is a picture of a unicorn. A real, live unicorn. While technically not a corncob, a single horn protrudes from the center of the animal's head. The deer, which resides in Tuscany, Italy, has a twin with regular horns. It was born in captivity after its mother was struck by a car and unable to fend for herself in the wild.
The earliest mention of the beast was by the Greek historian Herodotus in the 5th century BC.
In one notebook, Leonardo Da Vinci suggested unicorns could be captured using a virgin as bait.
Okay, so which one of you is gonna be the bait? HA! Just kidding, I'll do it :(
