Belarussian Shore Muddler
In Sweden, its native land, the Belarussian Shore Muddler is known as the "Vitrysk Strandmuddlare." It is found in the region of Zscicvzoskaija. The creature is remarkable because it appears to combine the head of a baby pig, the tail of a squirrel, and the feet of a water fowl.

The shore-muddler first came to the attention of the general public when it was displayed in the Göteborg Museum of Natural History on April 1, 1963. It has been displayed every April 1st since then.

The name "white russian shore muudler" is wrong.
It should be "Belarussian shore muddler".
The original swedish name is "Vitrysk strandmuddlare" and while "vit" means white and "rysk" means russian, "vitrysk" means belarussian.
(bela = white in latin)
By the way here are some links!
