Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Back to Meet the Animals

As poultry representative and the face of Wild Rumpus, Neil DeGrasse Tyson (the chicken, not the astrophysicist*) is well loved by staff and customers alike, even though she is often mistaken for a cat or some other furry animal. Her eyes may be covered in wild, fluffy feathers, but underneath the fluff, they belie her kind and gentle nature.

Although Neil is a bit shy around big crowds and sometimes needs to take a break behind the counter, she welcomes a gentle pet when the store is calm.
