JEDDAH: A Saudi man caught a strange animal in the desert and said no one could identify the creature, according to a Saudi newspaper.
Mutammam Al Rabei told Sabq newspaper he was on a desert safari in the Western Red Sea port of Jeddah when he saw the dog-like creature running in front of his car.
The creature looked similar to a canine but on further inspection, its paws appeared webbed and didn’t resemble a normal dog.
â€œI managed to catch it alive. It has a head similar to a dogâ€™s, but the animal is small and scary,â€ he said.
“I asked so many people whether they recognize the animal, but nobody could assure me what it really was. It is peculiar and the first time I have seen such a creature.â€MYNEWSHUB
