This incredible photograph of a ‘centigoat’ has arrived just in time for Halloween
So. Many. Hooves.
With Halloween approaching, this panoramic photo of a “centigoat” might just be the most bizarre thing you see this spooky season.
Taken by Reddit user dragonxp1 on a trip to see some animals, the image is the result of an ambitious attempt to create something amusing – it’s certainly that, but is it not a little terrifying as well?
With something approaching 20 legs, this is no regular goat – but how did the image come about?
“I was in Deer Valley YMCA Family Camp in Pennsylvania, specifically at the old nature centre (they built a new one),” Reddit user dragonxp1 told the Press Association.
“I saw the goat start walking and was just hoping for something cool or funny, like a really long goat. The goat was simply walking; I just tracked it with my iPhone so that the goat’s head stayed out of frame until the end.
“I was pleasantly surprised upon seeing the result as I was not expecting it to turn out so perfectly. It was more of a spur-of-the-moment kind of thing.
“The actual picture was much better than I had hoped for.”
It certainly turned out rather convincingly – here’s what the creature looked like before the iPhone made a monster out of it.
Phew, much better.
