A hidden camera set up by the World Wildlife Fund captured the picture of what’s being called the “Asian Unicorn.”
The animal is actually a saola but it’s commonly referred to as the “Asian Unicorn.”
Conservationists are so thrilled to have pictures of the animal they call "the most important wild animal photographs taken in Asia, and perhaps the world, in at least the past decade."
William Robichaud is the director of the team, he calls the saola "the holy grail for South-east Asian conservationists."
The saola was first discovered in 1992 hasn’t been spotted again since 1998 in Viet Nam.
The Los Angeles Times reports villagers in Laos trapped one in 2010 but it died quickly and there are no photos of the animal.
The picture was taken in Vietnam’s Central Annamite mountains where there are thought to be a couple of hundred of the elusive creatures living.
A look at the picture will tell you the saola doesn’t really look like the mystical and imaginary unicorn.
The saola has two horns, looks more like an antelope and is actually a cousin of the cow.
