In a strange tale from China, it appears that one man has found a use for a Rice Eel that most people have never considered… he put it up his butt.
We don’t know the exact details of how or why he put it up his butt… just that it ended up… in his butt.
The adult eel — which measured 50cm (20″) and weighed about 600g (1.3 lbs) — proceeded into the man’s colon and punctured it, requiring the man to be rushed to hospital for emergency surgery.
In a surgery that took all night to perform, the eel was successfully removed from the colon. According to the blog it was still breathing when it was extracted. The man is currently recovering in hospital. There is no word on the fate of the eel.
