Venice Beach Freakshow is a collection of bizarre and unusual discoveries under one roof.Mr Ray added: “The man told me it looked like it had gills under the head and that something was “growing out of it’s head like a flesh antennae.”This is the creature he told me about and it is stranger than I could have imagined. It is truly the most alien creature I have ever seen in my life.”It is a mystery to everyone who sees it in person.”It’s about a foot long and has gill-like ear things below the head. It’s got weird eyes and something out of its mouth that looks like a fleshy fang.”

According to The Huffington Post, it contacted a number of zoology experts, who were unable to conclude what it was, with one suggesting it could have been put together from different animals.Cristina Simmons of the San Diego Zoo said in an email: “It could certainly be an aborted/malformed fetus of any number of species but it appears to be an amalgam of different tissues.“I can’t help but notice that the tissue in the head appears to be embedded in the large ‘piece’ around it (and does not match in consistency or color), eyes and body do not appear to be from the same source as the facial tissue.”The Arizona Game and Fish Department, could only conclude it was mammalian-like, possibly a squirrel, deformed pig fetus or fetal bear still in the amniotic sac.
