The Sukotyro is a cryptid reported in traveller’s tales during their trips to the East Indies.
The creature possessed a heavy, rhino-like body, with elephantine feet, a pig snout, floppy ears, and a bushy tail, like a horse or cow. Its eyes were set high like a hippo, and projecting just below them, apparently directly from the face, were a pair of large tusks.
There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:
- An undiscovered species (a Cryptid)
- A hoax
- A misidentified babirua
- A misidentified javan rhino
- A pair of Sukotyro tusks presented to the British Museum of Natural History turned out to be horns from a water-buffalo.
