Yeti Crab
Kiwa hirsuta is a crustacean discovered in 2005 in the South Pacific Ocean.

Another distinguishing feature is turquoise blue ear lobes. These birds originated in China, found there by Marco Polo in 1298.

Silky Terrier
In the late 1800s, Yorkshire terriers were brought to Australia from England. These dogs had striking steel-blue and tan coat coloration and were bred with the native blue and tan Australian terriers in an effort to improve the latter's coat color while retaining its more robust conformation. Both the Yorkshire terrier and the Australian terrier were rather recent developments from crosses of a number of other terrier breeds. Some of the descendents from these crosses were shown as Yorkshire terriers and some as Australian terriers.
