WIKIPEDIA: This incredibly rare photo of the Amazon snake cat known as “Serpens Catus” goes viral and mystifies internet

This incredibly rare photo of the Amazon snake cat known as “Serpens Catus” goes viral and mystifies internet.

The Post has reached out to zoology experts to verify the authenticity of the photo.

However, the colour and patterns in the photo bear a strong resemblance to the reptilian boiga dendrophila, which is commonly referred to as the “gold-ringed cat snake”.

According to the Smithsonian’s National Zoo & Conservation Biology Institute, the snake is found in the same countries where the “Amazon snake cat” was rumoured to be found.

The so-called serpent cat slithered its way onto TikTok where one user claimed that the species lived in Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Guyana, French Guiana and Suriname.

“He’s in the next fantastic beasts,” laughed one user referencing the Harry Potter spin-off franchise.

“Use this s**t for good not to misinform,” slammed another user.

“Stop sharing bulls**t,”. The image in question features a picture of what appears to be a regular household cat, complete with a yellow and black pattern on its fur, not dissimilar to that which we would associate with a snake.

However, the pattern on its fur does resemble the scales that we often see on the snake, making for a truly striking image.

In the original post about the cat, it is claimed that it is the "rarest species of feline on earth" and can only be found in the most difficult-to-access areas of the Amazon rainforest.

As you may have already guessed, Serpens catus is not real. There is no evidence to support that the cat ever existed despite the aforementioned photo, which has been cleverly edited.

Although cats native to South America can be found in the Amazon rainforest there has never been a reported sighting of Serpens catus.

Around social media, people have been pointing out that the feline isn't real with TikTok users, in particular highlighting the preposterous nature of the claim.

One person wrote: "It is not difficult to find out this isn’t real if you have Internet. Google tells you if it is true or lie."

Another added: "So much of [the] Amazon is still not explored, but this beautiful animal can’t be real."

Over on YouTube one person reportedly said: "Too bad there is no fur texture in the yellow areas. Photoshop at it's worse."

Serpens catus is the rarest species of feline on Earth .These Animals live in hard to reach regions of the Amazon rainforest , and therefore they are relatively poorly studied .The first images capturing the snake cat appeared only in the 2020.Weighs up the 4 stone. 

One now-deleted “Serpens Cattus” Reddit post caught the eye of several commenters who flagged the feline as not being fur real.

“Obvious fake. No known gene can produce natural hair or fur of those (navy and bright yellow) colours,” one commenter said.

“Really rough attempt at a fake Latin name,” a second person chimed in. “One google about species naming would have made this a lot less obvious.”
