Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump is known for his bizarre barnet and now even birds are getting in on the look. A mallard, which was spotted swimming in Mill Pond, a wildlife part in Richmond Hill, Ontario in Canada, with its tufty backcombed feathers is the spitting image of the 69-year-old billionaire.
“I named the mallard Donald Duck once I saw him and that extra brownish hair growth reminded me of Mr. Donald Trump,” said Margaret Krzepkowski, self-employed cleaner from Ontario Canada, who spotted the mallard in Mill Pond, a wildlife park in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada.
The peculiar hairstyle of this small duck named “Donald Duck” is actually the result of a genetic mutation, caused by crossbreeding. As a result of the mutation, a duck can be born with a gap in its skull that is filled with a growth of fatty tissue and, from this, the feathers sprout in a different way to the normal smooth feathers seen on a duck’s head.
