The fur that animals are born with makes them fun to pet, ensuring they get plenty of back rubs all day long! Animals are known for their super soft furry coats, hence why they are so fun to cuddle. But some animals truly take the cake for having an incredible hairdo.

In some cases animals have evolved throughout the years to have lots of hair so that they are able to withstand the frigid winter weather where they reside. In other cases, animals are breed to have long hair. And then some animals, like the Feather Duster English Budgie featured below, have a wild coat of hair due to a genetic defect.

No matter what these 20 animals have long and fabulous locks of hair to blame for, they know how to rock it and look completely fabulous. These majestic haired animals are sure to make you swoon– as well as run to your nearest store in search of some hair products to help your own hair stand up to the elaborate competition put forth by the animal kingdom.

Feather Duster Budgie 

Feather Duster syndrome is seen in English Budgie birds. Breeders do not intentionally create feather dusters, it is actually a rare genetic problem that occurs due to interbreeding and overbreeding. If a Feather Duster is born, most breeders will stop breeding the responsible pair. When birds are first born with this mutation they just appear very large, causing breeders to assume they actually have a very good bird on their hands. Then, within about 4 weeks feathers start to grow more rapidly and do not stop, even after they molt.

While it sure looks cool, this mass amount of feathers can cause a lot of issues for the bird, causing many owners to trim the excess feathers to help. Unfortunately, feather dusters don’t usually live longer than 2-12 months, and other issues can include muscle deterioration, difficulty perching, flying, preening, and climbing.
