Strange 'Hybrid' Creature Has Researchers Scratching Their Heads - What Is It?

By this point in time, you would think that we have pretty much nailed down all the members of the animal kingdom. According to the Mirror, there may be one more to add to the list after all - if anyone can figure out what it is.

The peculiar creature was discovered in a remote village in Thailand, and images of the discovery have surfaced online. The animal is a weird hybrid of a reptile and a mammal, and it appears to have a pretty equal distribution of features from both sides of its family tree. The head resembles that of a crocodile, and its skin is scaly and rough just like one as well. Its limbs are a completely different story, and they resemble those that you would find on a buffalo, complete with hooves and all.

Local villagers are viewing the discovery as a positive sign.

"It is surprising and is believed to bring good luck to the family and the village," a post on a local website pointed out.

The good will appears to have run out, as the animal reportedly died soon after birth. No word on whether the marriages of any local buffalos or crocodiles broke up as a result of the discovery.
