Egg-headed boffins and brain-boxes working in the Amazon rain forests of Brazil have discovered a brand new species of amphibian, and the best thing is it looks like a metre long flaccid dong.
The bizarre looking atretochoana eiselti was discovered by biologists wriggling and writhing in the mud of a drained river bed on the Madeira river in Rondonia, Brazil. This one-eyed trouser-snake actually has no eyes and is completely blind, and it’s not a snake either, top Amazonian biologist Julian Tupan reports that the penis-like-creature breathes through its skin and is closely related to the salamander.
“We think the animal breathes through its skin, and probably feeds on small fish and worms, but there is still nothing proven.” Tupan said.
“The Amazon is a box of surprises when it comes to reptiles and amphibians. There are still much more to be discovered.”
