Not a lot of text accompanying the pictures in the The Daily Express article but it appears the unfortunate animal was photographed in High Rock, Wanghin in Thailand, died shortly after birth and is thought to bring good fortune to the villagers.

Weird animal with 'body of buffalo and head of crocodile' baffles everyone




With scaly skin and calf-like hooves, the bizarre animal looks like a genetic mutation between a buffalo and a crocodile.

The creature, which was found in Thailand, appears to have the rough, scaly head of a reptile and limbs and hooves of a mammal.


Clearly hybrids of crocodiles and buffalo don't exist but what exactly are we looking at? The hooves do in fact look like those of a buffalo and I'm thinking the overall size is consistent with a newborn buffalo. My first thought looking at the hind legs is a genetic disease, perhaps some form of ichthyosis but I'm not entirely certain; the head looks almost like it's been charred somehow. In fact all of the affected areas are considerably darker but I suppose that could be pigmentation. There's also something that appears to be a dusting of a white powdery substance across its back, possibly some sort of caustic agent?

My first thought is some kind of deformed komodo dragon.

Really weird looking animal either way.

Throw it on the fire... See if it tastes like chicken... In that part of the world it is surely a cure for erectile dysfunction or fertility... Penis problem? Eat anything gross and weird.

Edit to add.... It is obviously a calf, look at the nose, look at the back legs where they were bound. They put the animal in the fire skin and all... Just getting ready for a feast of some sort.

I understand Thai somewhat and from what I can hear... The first guy says this isn't a Croc, there's no Croc that look like this. Lady chimes in and says Pha Yha Nak (Naga, serpent-like creature in Thai folklore.) then ask if someone can tie it. First guy again says he has never seen something like this in his whole life and at the end someone says the feet looks like Elephant's feet...

Rough translation, but thats basically it I think.

im sure DNA sample can be extracted and solved in mins.

If not legit then the "body" will "mysteriously" disappear.

The Mrs. and I both agree. It's either a calf with some sort of disease, like harlequin-type ichthyosis, or there's a mad scientist creating croco-bulls.

I noticed that too but I wasn't sure if it was a fold of skin or a ring of some sort.

Does that look like croc scales running from it's nose down to it's tail, yikes!

It has to be genetically manipulated, you just can't morph into looking like a completely different species of animal by chance, looks like a hypo or buffalo that has a croc head and what appears to be scales on it as well. Strange!

Makes one wonder why the Egyptians depicted glyphs of hybrid animals, possibly depicting what they saw and *cough* worshiped as gods.

By the way, how do they know this died shortly after birth and birth from what? Although, I think that lady said around the :28 - :29 mark that it's basically too big to be a (baby?) calf.

So in the 90's there was a movie called existenz. I don't know why but that movie came to mind when I saw that picture. Had some crazy restaurant in the movie and people would eat plate fills of crazy critters. Odd
