IMAGES have been shared online of this creepy creature, which looks half crocodile, half buffalo, after it was born in a remote town in Thailand.
The bizarre animal appears to be covered in large scales with a long head, similar to a crocodile, while it seems to have the body and legs of a calf.
Online footage shows locals gathering around the animal while lighting incense and candles, believed to be for good luck.

Local website Rath reports the animal was born in the village of High Rock by a buffalo that has previously given birth to normal litters.
According to the site, it died soon after birth, and “is believed to bring good luck to the family and the village.”
