The Texas city of Amarillo is asking the public for assistance in identifying a strange thing spotted lurking outside the Amarillo Zoo. The internet is bewildered by the unusual figure, but there are Twitter reactions with guesses at what the creepy creature could possibly be.
A surveillance camera caught something creeping around the Amarillo Zoo around 1:30 a.m. on May 21, according to KFDA-TV. Apparently, zoo employees spotted the eery figure while reviewing the security cameras.

“We’d love to hear feedback from the community on what they think it might be,” Kashuba said. “It’s a very unique picture, and we’re excited to see what the community thinks. The photo is absolutely real.”
