    Cryptomundo is going to shit, this is old and it was part of the viral marketing campaign for a movie.

  4. David Joseph Torres via Facebook responds:

    Looks faked. The stamp on it is HIGHLY suspect to be.

  5. Paul V Ruggeri via Facebook responds:

    A hoax, is what it is.

  6. giorgiofan255 responds:

    It looks like a deformed pig to me.

  7. Beth M. Dodd via Facebook responds:

    My high school science teacher had something like this in formaldehyde in a jar….it was a deformed pig. That is what this is. Also, if it’s not a hoax, this guy was awfully crazy to touch it with his bare hands.

  8. Cryptidcrazy responds:

    Fake. From some ultra low budget, sci-fi horror film.

  9. mandors responds:

    It’s got a soundtrack. Guessing fake. Just a guess.

  10. Kimberly Poeppey via Facebook responds:

    the music killed any respectability this video and creature may have had. I say hoax…

  11. cryptokellie responds:

    I believe that this clip is from a viral campaign for a Si-Fi film that has been voiced-over by another group. While I can’t tell you what it is, I can tell you what it isn’t…real.

  12. mrdark responds:

    This is very old. Viral marketing for director Neil Blomkamp’s ‘Elysium’ coming out this year.

    I certainly would not be touching a REAL unknown animal with my bare hands.
