This bizarre creature, discovered in Thailand, has caused a large amount of confusion after appearing to be part crocodile and part buffalo. However, locals aren’t 100 percent sure what this strange beast is.

With a body that looks like a mammal (but with hooves and limbs) and a head that vageuly looks like a reptile, no one can seem to figure out exactly what this “animal” is.

We’d say that’s the end of that, but since the animal died not too long after its birth, the people who live in the Thai village claim it’s a good luck charm and even thanked God for bringing this strange creature into their lives.
