Would that be the rare six-legged haggis that has its legs longer on one side so the it can only run round the hills in one direction? The male and female grow longer legs on opposite sides which means that they can meet going in opposite directions, but makes mating incredibly hard: hence their rarity.

Also found occasionally the South Island's Mackenzie Country and the hills around Dunedin. It's no use hunting them because they are totally camoflaged amongst the tussocks and rocks. They can sometimes be enticed out of their hiding places and caught with a large bottle of Scotch but their call, which sounds like an entire out-of-tune Highland Pipe Band has been known to send haggis hunters mad.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8l2m3_2Xjg

(And no, I don't understand a word of that either. The last time I encountered a haggis - and this address was a large Henderson family reunion. A sword was used instead of the knife.)
