A deformed-looking goat-like creature seen in a recent viral video has turned out to be an actual goat breed.
With its disproportionately-shaped head and strange facial features, it's easy to imagine how this peculiar four-legged beast could be mistaken for something out of a horror movie.

Known as the Damascus goat, this unusual species has been bred for its milk in the Middle-East for thousands of years.

Incredibly, in 2008, a goat named Qahr won the "Most Beautiful Goat" prize in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The original video, which was uploaded on to Facebook by Ahmed Ramadan, can be viewed below.

But well goats, while also adorable and amazing can have that effect on some people even if they are the garden variety. It also looks pretty cool, makes me wonder why they don't use them in fantasy and scifi movies more? Why GCI an

When I first saw the vid on my small phone, I honestly thought the goat's  ears were it's eyes.

Imagine mounting THAT head on your wall. Likely would scare the crap out-of any resident demons...

I was reading the comments wondering how bad it could be... That is one ugly creature. I thought it would be that Jersey Devil looking bat-fox creature.
