An unusual animal was apparently caught in the Shenzhen Reservoir of China's Sand Bay by workers for the Department of Drainage. Though news outlets like Mirror have described the animal as “alienlike” and Raymond Yeung, the man who uploaded the video (below), claims the animal is a mythical “water ghost,” the explanation is probably far from supernatural.
Some users on Chinese social media site WeiBo believe the trapped animal is a Malaysian bear that has lost its hair.
Another hairless bear, which has a striking resemblance to the one in this video, was rescued in Borneo after causing a sensation online with its appearance, which was also described as “alienlike.” The animal turned out to be a sickly sun bear, which has since been taken in by the Sarawak Forestry Corporation.
