    that would be cool if it was mimicking sea creatures that are extinct now and that`s why they don`t understand what its trying to mimic

    This was up before, but that video was pulled off YouTube...

    See @Gerry1! Not EVERY repost gets a catgirl!

    (Because this is such a cool video, eh?)

    It IS an amazing animal. If you made it up? No one would believe it.

    Kill it. The form the lifeless body takes is its "real" form. Also, it should probably be killed before it is tooo late.

    Actually it is probably mimicking something it has seen that we have never seen before.

    I`m also sure I`ve seen a video or read somewhere that they have been observed mimicking objects.

    Can it impersonate Susan Boyle to scare off humans?

    And can it do Elvis? Mind you, who can`t.

    If he mimics more deadly/poisonous animal ... I`d hate to run into that poisonous furry turkey with human legs that he learned that from.
