No one said it was a hoax. A hoax implies a malicious intent to deceive. No one is claiming that.
What do you think it is?

It looks a lot like what we aussies call a 'tawny frogmmouth' or Podargus strigoides. It's a type of owl-like bird we get over here.

They say that its a little known type of bird , so if they say that then its because they probably identified it.

Someone tells you what it is and people still want to claim its a reptile
In my opinion it does look like this, a nighthawk
and another with mouth partly open
[edit on 21-2-2009 by munkey66]
It looks similar but the mouth seems way too wide.
Could the be an owl?

anway at the end they said it's nothing out of normal.. Just a rare species of bird. Too bad they didnt mention what is called.
