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 it you could see them you'd probably notice that 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.
