A Siamese cat decorated with ornate flowers, hearts and rhinestones took home – or, we assume, sat in disgust with – the top prize at Monday's Feline Fantasy extreme grooming contest in East Rutherford, N.J.

The rescue kitty's far-out fur design didn't come easily. Professional groomer Angela Kumpe painstakingly cut and dyed the cat's coat after drawing the pattern, best described as a feline fleur-de-lis, on her back with a marker. (See the final product in the video above.)

Nope, it's not an order of wings served at your local bar: the "Chicken from Hell" is a newly discovered dinosaur – and by the looks of it, it was quite scary.

Scientists recently discovered the bones of the Anzu Wyliei in a sedimentary rock layer known as the Hell Creek Formation in North and South Dakota (hence the nickname). It's believed the bizarre, feathery creature – which kind of resembles today's ostrich – was a hefty 500 lbs. and stood at a towering 10-ft. tall when it roamed Earth during the Cretaceous period, about 68 million years ago.
