Default Snake With a Human Head found in Malaysia

I've just seen this video online. Im massively dubious of the video and photographic evidence the news story presents. Can anyone shed some light on it?

It is creepy as NFSBK though. I'd be curious to see a better quality video to see if it is a gaff or a sculpted creation.

Aren't snakes with human heads called "Naga"s and haven't they been (mythically speaking) around for aeons?

Looks like a movie prop. Pretty cool, though!

"Naga" is just the hindi word for snake.

Snake: Do I look familiar to you?
Stark: Yeah, you look like Einstein.

It also refers to a god from Hindu mythology that often took the form of a snake or a human-snake hybrid.

Am I the only one wondering how the food chain works between a crocoduck and a snuman?

Usually, they play tug-of-war with the food chain. The loser has to pay for pizza.

Looks like a variation on the old Fiji Mermaid humbug.
