A man in China went to the hospital to seek care after a severe headache, only to discover that he was habouring a gecko in his hear.
The patient is unidentified, but the incident happened in the Chinese city of Guangzhou, Guangdong province.
According to Newsflare.com, the man went to First Affiliated Hospital of Jinan University on Tuesday morning after he reportedly felt something moving around in his ear.
Doctors reportedly discovered a tiny gecko in the man’s ear canal. They anesthetized the lizard to prevent it from crawling further into the man’s head.
After that, doctors quickly pulled the reptile from the man’s ear using pliers, according to UPI.com.
Local website ThatsMags.com also reports that the extracted gecko was without tail.
Despite an extensive search, hospital workers never found the reptile’s tail. However, doctors supposed the creature lost its tail before entering the man’s ear.
