Puzzles that will leave you in (identical) pieces

Today’s puzzles come from Alain Nicolas, a Frenchman who has
been called the world’s finest artist of Escher-style tilings.
(That’s to say, tilings with no gaps or overlaps in which each
tile is in the shape of a living creature, as pioneered in the
1930s and 1940s by the Dutch artist MC Escher).

In each puzzle, you will be presented with an outline, such as
the one below left. The challenge is to draw a line that divides it
into a certain number of pieces of identical size and shape. In
this case, the solution, with two pieces, is below right.
