Jesus nature, what are you playing at?
Strolling along, with its wings casually gliding in the breeze, the mythical bird-dog has made a rare appearance on a New Zealand beach.
As yet scientists are uncertain what species of canine and bird mated to create this abomination of nature.
And as the temperate of the animal is unknown it is recommended they are always approached with caution.
It's not the first fiendishly freaky mash-up of nature we've been witness to.
Who could forget the hellish progeny of the cane toad and bat?
