Mystery creature image posted on Twitter

A photograph of a mysterious carnivorous creature has been posted by Jonah King on Twitter.

The image shows an unidentified creature with vicious looking teeth that was allegedly photographed in the American southwest. According to Mr King the corpse was being picked at by buzzards when it was found and appears to be wrapped in a plastic bin bag.

The jury is out over what the creature is, since the image appeared online theories suggested have ranged from a dead bear or pet dog to a cryptozoological creature such as the legendary Chupacabra. Could it be a genuine new species or is there a more conventional explanation ?

"@MattMoneymaker1 do you have any idea what this is? It was found in rural southwest Ms being eaten by buzzards."

The amazing thing is that with all the high-rez cams in phones, tablets, etc and all the good digital cameras and whatnot, we still get ****ty grainy pictures.

But if we had good pictures UM would be a very boring place, with threads titled "Look at this tree stump," or "Exclusive photos of road kill".

I think its an anciet hairy dinosaur, acctually we know now some had fur/feathers and are potentialy warm blooded. Digest that then tell me it doesn't look like a hairy alligator raptor thing. Sucks its dead and decaying.

Its a dog or a coyote. No telling how long its been dead. Buzzards, opossums, and crows picking at it would explain any hair loss along with hundreds of other reasons. mis-shaped head? Hit by a car. Really nothing at all unusual about it. Its a dead dog of some sort. Mike

Actually, the warm blooded dinosaurs is only a hypothesis, nothing has been proven yet either way. Besides, not even all modern mammals are warm-blooded in exactly the same way. A fast, hungry cheetah has a classic warm-blooded metabolism, but the relatively primitive platypus sports a tuned-down metabolism that in many ways is closer to that of a comparably sized lizard than to that of other mammals. Further complicating matters, some palaeontologists claim that slow-moving prehistoric mammals had true cold-blooded metabolisms. It's never that clear-cut. And no it doesn't look lik... [More]

It's clear to see this isn't a dog with those type of teeth.

It's obviously Grainius Photographus. When you look it dead in the.. Err, skull... side effects include being unable to take a decent photograph of dead dogs, deciding horrible angles are good, and just overall stupidity in photography 101.

I think its a hoax, the article said he sent it to finding bigfoots Matt MoneyMaker and got no response, MoneyMaker didnt respond because its a hoax. Theres already enough of that going on in the field of Bigfoot.
