Video footage of a rather peculiar discovery has been doing the rounds on social media this month.
What’s long, slithers around underwater and is covered in green fur ?
This was the question asked by a number of curious social media users this week after footage of such a creature, which was discovered in Thailand, went viral online.
It was found quite unexpectedly in the city of Sakhon Nakhon and placed into a container of water.
So could this be a previously undiscovered species, a deliberate hoax, or is something else going on ?
In this case, at least, there does appear to be a conventional explanation – the general consensus among the locals is that this is in fact a puff-faced water snake that has spent so long at the bottom of a swamp waiting for prey to come along that moss has literally grown all over its body.
You can check out the footage for yourself below.
