A bizarre video capturing an odd-looking creature being fed by a straw has left viewers stunned.
The clip has gone viral since it was first posted on Twitter, with viewers taking a guesses to find out the animal.
Conspiracy theorist Disclosescreen shared the clip on his YouTube channel and asked for his fans of the hairless creature.
The finger-sized bird-like creature appears to be choking down the food with its eyes closed while being fed by a straw.
Viewers were shocked and even suggested that it looked like the monstrous Demogorgon from the popular Netflix series Stranger Things.
One joked: “Is that Dart from Stranger Things?”
Others joined and said it could be a baby Venom from Marvel Comics.
But it didn’t take long for viewers to find out it’s “some sort of baby bird”.
One viewer pointed out: “Bird looks like a gouldian finch baby, I think the spots are for the parents to see to feed in dark nests, possibly…”
Another one added: “That’s a bird with some funky mouthpiece!”
“I did recognise baby bird, could be another species I don’t know,” a third one wrote.
The colourful markings on the Gouldian Finch chicks help the parents to judge the health and the age of their babies.
Claudia Mettke-Hoffmann, an animal behavior researcher at Liverpool John Moores University, says, for instance, that the glowing bumps outside of the beak in Gouldian Finches reflect light, possibly serving as a built-in beacon.
Australian National University researcher Cassandra Taylor says the reflective quality of markings may help parents hone in on their chicks’ mouths, “like little runways” guiding a plane down a dark path.
