This mysterious hairless creature walks along the road near Carlisle, AR, stumbling through the three digit desert heat. It looks like an emaciated dog "performer" I met at Angkor Wat in Cambodia in the '60's who would sidle up to tourists, then fall with a thud, flat on its side, acting like it was his last breath. When it got no attention, it would go to the next tourist and fall over again, ever hopeful. The strange thin animal in this photo, with piercing eyes and impressive scars, did not fall but surprisingly found energy to slink into the desert heat when a 200mm lens was pointed at it. Being a stranger there I showed the digital image to several people in the area, thinking someone would recognize it or its type, but no one had ever seen anything like it. Photo by Charles Osgood
