It costs just 10 US cents to see the mythical half-fox, half-woman creature at the Karachi Zoo. This is none other than Murad Ali, who impersonates Mumtaz Mahal by applying full make up and attaches his head to a fox carcass. Ali does this by sitting on an ornate wooden pagoda and entertaining visitors for over 12 hours by reading fortunes and giving life advice. The meaning "chosen one of the palace" that represents the name "Mumtaz Mahal" has rightly been justified. The role of Mumtaz has been played by several actors over the years and Ali, 33 now, took over this role from his father who died years ago. 

The depiction of this mythical feature in form of "foxy lady" takes the entertainment factor in a zoo to a new standard as it is the only animal that can talk in the zoo. People from all age-groups enjoy the entertaining show put up by Begaum Mumtaz. Apart from exotic wildlife, bizzare is the new term for Zoos with fox-cum-woman creatures. 

Here is a video by Mail Online that depicts Pakistan's foxy-Lady.
