Α viral TikTok video of a strange, alien-like animal is confusing viewers all across the world
With pasty-white, poofy skin, googly eyes, and short arms with long claws, this creepy creature could easily be mistaken for a real-life Pokémon.
But what is it, really?
Millions of people have stumbled across the TikTok footage of “Skuttles Rock” and have been asking themselves the exact same question.
The clips, which show a bloated something floating around in an aquarium, seem out of this world.
But don’t worry, the aliens haven’t arrived on TikTok yet: the white bubble is merely a strange-looking frog who suffers from an unpleasant disease.
To be precise, Skuttles Rock is a female, nine-year-old Αfrican albino clawed frog. Her name also explains her pale skin color and claws.
The huge blisters tainting her body are caused by a disease called “bloat” or “dropsy.” The primary symptom of the syndrome is severe bloating of the abdomen and legs due to all the fluid that has built up inside the little body.
Skuttles’ disease has made her a superstar on the platform. She recently broke a new record when one of her videos hit over 44 million views and four million likes – within only four days!
Meanwhile, viewers came up with hilarious theories to explain the frog’s odd appearance.
“He got a lot on his mind,” one joked.
“Living mozzarella?” another asked. “How did my ex get in there?!” someone chimed in.
Skutty’s owners have explained in follow-up footage that the little animal is doing fine despite the circumstances. The poor frog had been suffering from the skin bumps for around three years before the researchers found her and took her in.
Skutty seems to be in good hands and is expected to recover soon. But until then, she will continue to mesmerize (and scare) the internet with her extraordinary look.
