Mariy El, Respublika
Russia

At the end of May 2024, residents of the village of Vizimyary in the Russian Republic of Mari El, walking in the forest with their children, came across the remains of an unidentified animal.

According to local news, eyewitnesses described the creature as resembling a lizard, about 70 cm long, with unusually long hind legs. Initially, he was mistaken for a weasel, but his features raised doubts.

Three years ago, an unknown animal was killing chickens and rabbits in Vizimyars, which led villagers to assume that it could be the same creature.

Gennady Bogdanov, a senior researcher at the Bolshaya Kokshaga Nature Reserve, was contacted to identify the animal, but he could not make an unambiguous conclusion only from photographs and videos.

He stressed the need for a medical examination to analyze the size and teeth.

According to local news, the creature "looks like a lizard" and is about 70 cm long.

"Her limbs are too long for an otter. Videos and photos are not enough to accurately identify a long-dead animal. It is necessary to look at the spot and determine the size and formula of the teeth," Bogdanov said.

Social media users offered different options, including a hare, a wolverine (despite their absence in Mari El) or even a chupacabra.

At the moment, additional information about the mysterious discovery has not yet been received.

The remains of an unknown creature were found in Russia

Gennady Bogdanov, a senior researcher at the “Bolshaya Kokshaga” nature reserve, was contacted to identify the animal but couldn’t make a definitive determination from photos and videos alone.

He emphasized the need for physical examination to analyze the size and teeth.

According to the local news, the creature “looks like a lizard” and is about 70 cm long.

“For an otter, his limbs are too long. Videos and photos are not enough to accurately identify a long-dead animal. We need to look on the spot and determine the size and formula of the teeth,” Bogdanov said.

Social media users have suggested various possibilities, including a hare, a wolverine (despite their absence in Mari El), or even a chupacabra.

As of now, further information on the mysterious discovery remains pending.

Famous creatures

There are a huge number of different living organisms on our planet. According to recent estimates, the number of species of organisms on our planet is approximately 7-10 million. However, only 15% of the data are described today.

According to the calculations of Canadians, 2.2 million species live in the world's oceans, 6.5 million on land. There are only about 7.8 million species of animals on the planet, 611 thousand fungi, and 300 thousand plants.

Post-mortem changes

Because ordinary people are rarely familiar with the nuances of postmortem changes in organisms, it can often take them for something mystical.

Gray meat flies eat rotting tissue, leaving a sharp edge. This explains the "surgical" removal of organs and parts of the skin. However, such behaviors of the flies many take for the interference of aliens or attacked by unknown creatures.
