The animal kingdom never fails to surprise us with its many hidden wonders.

That said, there are certain creatures that stand out more than others, those capable of instantly capturing global headlines due to their odd appearances or unusual nature.

Now, I’ll be the first to admit that when I stumbled upon an image of this peculiar “penis snake,” I initially dismissed it as a joke.

But to my amazement, it turned out to be a real animal. So, join me as I unravel the story behind the viral image that has left thousands of people stunned…

Throughout history, objects with phallic shapes have always managed to grab attention and ignite curiosity. A few years ago, a series of images began circulating on the web, showcasing a creature that left many shaking their heads in disbelief.

Sporting a distinctive appearance, the mysterious and odd-looking animal earned itself a series of fitting nicknames including the ”penis snake”, ”blind snake” or the ”man-aconda”.

But no, it’s not what you think it is.

Despite its striking resemblance to a snake, the creature is known as Atretochoana eiselti, and defies expectations by belonging to a completely different category of animal. It’s actually an amphibian more closely related to the salamander, and the largest of the few known lungless tetrapods.
