I saw the video and could not identify what the creature was. How is it that no one is able to identify this animal and what animal is it?

I hope that the animal is identified soon and we may know if we have a new species.


Animal experts are baffled by a small, hairless creature found dead on the golf course at Runaway Bay in Wise County.

Potter showed the remains to several people and then took it to a veterinarian's office in Bridgeport. He said no one there could identify it, either.

The creature is dark brown, about 18 inches long, with a black nose and a face resembling a rodent -- but with long canine teeth jutting from the upper and lower jaws.

My link is not saying that it is chupacabra, it is still to be identified. So I dont think it is right to say that it is chupacabra

Fair enough.

Second line. The discussion over there has already gone this way. That was what I was thinking. Did not mean to step on toes.

It's a Fox... with no hair. Guess these 'experts' are not so 'expert'.....

The "experts" were the same thing that drew me to comment on the other thread. I want to know where they get these "experts" for all these hairless animals that turn out to be known animals. It seems odd that many scientists can identify an animal from a bone and yet we keep seeing "experts" baffled at hairless sloths and raccoons and whatever this turns out to be.

Someone on the other thread mentioned it appeared to be a type of Coati which is in the raccoon family so that seems pretty plausible. It was my first quasi-guess.

That sounds VERY plausible:


I think the biologist from Cornell (New York State) needs to spend some more time in Texas.

Weird.

Is there a militairy base near where they found that animal?.....just joking...or.....wait I put my conspiracy hat off.....

It seemed to be well fed and therefore able to take care of its self, it is young.....they should check out the COD (cause of death). That can maybe tell something more about what it is and where it came from.


If they will find manufactured dog food in his stomach you would know that there was most likely somebody feeding it. At least it will give some more info about the poor creature. RIP.

The news here (major news for this area, not too far from Wise Country) said it was a hairless raccoon that had probably frozen to death.

Positive ID for strange creature in Wise County

I'm not sure, I can't really imagine a raccoon without any fur. At the same time though, I don't really spend too much time reading about mysterious creatures, so the news could be pulling my leg and I might not ever know it.
