19 Haggis Scoticus
 

This rare creature that normally resides in the highlands of Scotland has been found thriving in the mountains of Turkey.

It's a little known fact that the Celtic Gaul's invaded Asia Minor in 279 BC and established the kingdom of Galatia near Ankyra [Ankara], now the capital city of Turkey. It is believed these people brought with them a breeding pair of wild clockwise Haggis to what was then central Asia Minor.

That Haggis Scoticus has survived all this time in the mountains of Turkey is not surprising given the topographical similarity between Scotland and Turkey and Haggis's remarkable resemblance to a rock making it virtually undetectable to the untrained eye.
