A bizarre-looking fish with legs caught in Thailand had fishermen, and the Internet, baffled by what exactly it was (video below).

A video of the creature shows the fish dangling from the end of a fishing line after being caught in a river. The fishermen seemingly have no idea what the fish is.

Many have speculated the animal is a batfish due to its legs and long tail. Batfish are known to use pelvic fins as hands to walk along the sea bed.

The video of the fish quickly went viral after it was posted online on Feb. 26.

In a similar incident in Thailand, a fisherman caught a strange-looking "half fish," a fish that lost its tail and a good portion of its body after attempting to jump out of a cement-lined pond.
