Offbeat Video

 A strange eel-like creature has been caught on camera being pulled from mud in Indonesia.

 After several attempts at pulling out the bizarre eel, it finally it emerged and it wasn’t happy.

 Border operations worker Jejak Cikalang, 30 can be seen dragging the creature out of the mud in the footage, taken earlier this month.

 He said: “At first I thought it was a snake, but it turned out to be an eel. 

“I wasn’t really phased by it but the people around me weren’t so keen.

 “It smelled disgusting as well.”
