Swamp Buck by spookDD Swamp Buck by spookDD
Swamp buck is something I was referred to on DA, and then investigated further. Turns out its a mythological taxidermied legend. Taxidermists take the eyes of crocodiles, head and antlers of a deer, and the mouth and teeth of a coyote or wolf. Put together they create "Swamp Buck," what hunters told people deer would turn into if we didn't hunt them. Sweet Ass. Also a big shout out to [link] for having on hand good enough photos for this to come together.

Put this as your wallpaper and people freak out.

OMG, I would LOVE to do that with my next buck to freak some of my friends out and just for the heck of it, but I have no idea how much it is for one though, hopefully it wouldn't be too expensive. ^^

Hahaha "swamp buck" that's funny, but yeah if it's a taxidermy myth then how could the creature harm us?:P Anywho it's still awsome...If I ever actually see a deer in Australia I'll think of it the same way:P

But there's one things... "Swamp Bucks" are real... although not as -IMA GONNA EAT YOU WITH MY WOLFISH TEEFERS- xD
Its a kind of deer (Chinese Swamp deer/something close to that)
They do have fangs but no ebil eyeballs.
But it'd still freak me out if I ran into one o.O;;
