Villagers in a remote Thai village have been
left bewildered and terrified by the appearance of this bizarre creature.
The strange looking animal has dark, scaly skin like a reptile and a crocodile-shaped
head – despite being born from a buffalo. Footage of the odd creature shows it laid
out on a table as a gathering crowd prods its scaly skin and head while lighting candles
and incense. The animal surfaced in High Rock, Wang Hin
in Thailand, and was born to a buffalo, local website Rath reported.
It was claimed the buffalo had given birth to a previous litter of perfectly healthy
calves. But exactly how the creature came to grow
scales and form an elongated snout akin to a crocodile remains a mystery – though villagers
now hope it will bring them good luck.
