A bizarre-looking, unidentified creature was spotted roaming outside the Texas Zoo, baffling the zoo officials. This strange-looking creature was spotted on the security camera of the Amarillo Zoo on May 21 at around 1.30 am. The zoo officials were casually checking the game cameras placed across the zoo when they chanced upon this footage.

The photo shared by the zoo, which has gone viral, shows a strange long creature standing on what appears to be two legs outside the zoo premises. "Was it a person with a strange hat who likes to walk at night? A large coyote on its hind legs? A Chupacabra?” voiced an official who feels it is a mystery.

The zoo has termed it UAO- Unidentified Amarillo Object, and the officials have urged the residents to help them solve this puzzle. The viral picture overlooks an open area of the zoo which is usually deserted.

An important thing to note is that this creature was found roaming outside the zoo premises, and no signs were seen of it attempting to enter the zoo. Also, no animals have been harmed after this sighting, nor have there been any reports of criminal activity.

Some social media users thought he could be a skinwalker- a mythological creature in a Navajo tradition that can change its shape into that of an animal. Although no harm was caused, this sighting has sparked curiosity among the zoo officials and residents.
