Idaho Fish and Game authorities have confirmed the fact that a grotesque puma pic showing abnormal features is not a hoax.

The picture showed what was a mountain lion or puma. But there was one huge difference. This particular puma had an outgrowth of teeth, hair and whiskers arising from its forehead.

Local wildlife experts were divided into skeptics and believers as far as this strange species was concerned. A hunter brought in the year old mountain lion and it was the weirdest sight that the locals had ever seen.

“A hunter brought it in, and there was something extra,” Idaho Fish and Game spokeswoman Jennifer Jackson told EastIdahoNews. “We haven’t seen anything like this in our region.”

The young mountain lion was a female and it had been shot dead by an Idaho hunter. The law requires all hunters to bring in the animals they have shot dead to be noted down by the authorities.

But when this sample was brought in, the onlookers just couldn’t believe their eyes. The interesting thing was the the growth was a mixture of muscles and tissue. Teeth, hair and whiskers were jutting out from this base. The animal was photographed and the hunter took it home to be skinned and stuffed.

Some suggested that the pic of the animal was a fake. But authorities confirmed that it was for real. The experts have a few explanations for this deformity in the puma. It could be an attached twin that had never fully developed.

This twin would have imbedded itself into the baby puma when it was in its mother’s womb. Or the growth could be a tumor known as a teratoma. Such tumors contain extraneous elements like hair and teeth.

As the animal develops, the teratoma also gets larger and larger. The experts are trying to get in touch with the hunter so that they could get a better look at the dead animal.
