Okay, so I thought I'd share this. Some people think it's a snake they dressed up, which is believable.
Here's the article on Kotaku
And here's the original source I believe:
My opinion on this? I highly doubt it's a snake. I own a corn snake, and like most snakes, the eyes are more to the center of the head, and not so
If this is an actual creature...
- I don't really see why it would evolve such a long neck, especially since the tail is so small and thin. It would be horribly unbalanced, or have
to have strong neck/back muscles to hold it's head up.
- There are no reptiles that I know of with fur (geckos have tiny hairs on their feet for sticking to things, but that's considerably different than
the mammal-like hair in the image).
-if this was real, if anything I'd say it's the descendant of some sort of dinosaur, as claws are more bird-like than reptilian.
-I don't see the purpose of an animal like that growing horns, unless they are vestigial and the only use is to impress females or something
Anywho, if it's fake (99% sure it is...) they did a really good job of recreating the classic Chinese dragon
Post your thoughts!
