Dr Abe V Rotor
Chimaera, acrylic AVR 2005

I saw you when I was a child on cartoon,
     in youth a monster to slay;
I saw you in the hadal depth of the ocean,
     armed with tools of the day.

I saw you with Jules Verne and Arthur Doyle,
     with Linnaeus and Darwin;
I saw you with Cousteau and Attenborough,
     in every creature your twin. ~

  1. What is the beast. Chimaera, in Greek mythology? 
  2. How does this biological phenomenon apply to other animals? to Plants? 
  3. Explain the scientific cause of chimaera? Its genetic basis?
