The almost three-decades old travel guide, Roadside America has nicely profiled the International Cryptozoology Museum on February 11, 2010. Their good overview article appears here. It has great directions, a map, and hints of other nearby weird items to see. (The site also earlier made mention of the museum here.)
Besides acknowledging all the pieces of cryptid evidence in the museum, they also mention the fakes too. Then they use their own image of a fur-bearing trout (above). I’ll place the image of the fur-bearing trout we actually have in the museum below. That way folks won’t think we are trying to pull a fast one on them when they come and see ours has white fur.

These are not to be confused with the well-known “Beaver Trout” or the extremely rare, reportedly endangered melanistic fur-bearing trout, shown at the bottom. The ICM is still in search of examples of these for its collection, needless to say!
Happy Birthday, Malcolm.
