The mystery creature that nobody can identify (updated)

No wonder he looks confused: The mystery creature that nobody can identify.

Very cute mystery animal delivered to a zoo in China.

…zookeepers at Wenling, in eastern China, who were handed the animal by an anonymous man, have been unable to work out exactly what species he belongs to.

Update: A reader at Ghost Theory pinpointed this as a spotted cuscus, a type of opposum native to New Guinea. Since it was given to the zoo, it was most likely imported.

    It looks DELICIOUS. Fry it up, maybe we will be able to identify it by TASTE.
