Photos have emerged of the remains of a prehistoric creature in Singapore. The weird creature is having the head of an alligator and body of a fish.

The creature left Singapore locals in a state of confusion after this prehistoric creature was discovered. The creature was lying on the banks of the MacRitchie Reservoir.

However, the prehistoric creature has now been identified by the city’s water agency and National Parks Board who said that it was an alligator gar.

It is a fish that is native to the southern United States. The species is a living fossil because so much of its biology is similar to its earliest ancestors.

Moreover, the carcass is no longer lying there. Also, it is a punishable offence to release animals into reservoirs and waterways in Singapore.
