Who would have thought that there could be a certain kind of species with a striking resemblance to that of the male sex organ? 

As reported by Monga Bay, the exotic creature was discovered by the engineers when a portion of the Madeira River, Amazon's largest and most important tributary was being drained as part of the controversial hydroelectric project.

Biologist Julian Tupan, identified the limbless amphibian as Atretochoana eiselti. Although the new set of discovery is still under further investigations, these interesting breed of species are thought to be aquatic and breathe through its skin. They feed on small fishes, worms and other aquatic invertebrates. 

Known as the world's largest river, the Amazon in Brazil is definitely the home of the world's most eccentric creatures. Who knows there could be a living critter lurking behind its shadows with the exact appearance to that of the male counterpart - the female organ of copulation?

Atretochoana Eiselti known informally as "Floppy Snake" or "Man-aconda". What do you think
could be the best name you can give? Your guess might be as good as mine..:-)
