"We need readers' help in identifying this incredibly strange creature. My friend Zack has posted a photo of it on his site Arr-the-Kraken.com. "
"Just outside of Seattle, WA my roommate Ed recently took a photo of this . . . thing. We have no idea what animal this is but it was seemingly deaf and/or dumb as Ed got extremely close to it before it slunk away."
"There are two tufts of hair on it but, otherwise, it was completely bald. Any thoughts? Your help is appreciated!"
