A desperate mother of China, is begging doctors to perform surgery on her baby after growing a long tail.
The distraught mother of Changsha, has begged doctors to help her five-month-old son, who has grown the five-inch long tail.
Nuo Nuo suffers from spina bifida, a development congenital disease that leaves an empty gap in the spine. A few days after the baby was born, her mother noticed a tail beginning to grow and now the child has a rare long growth.
Although Nuo Nuo’s mother has asked doctors to remove the unusual growth, they cannot do anything because the tail is linked to his nervous system and removing it will lead to permanent damage.
This was not the first time that a human tail made headlines. As we reported in February, a man who has grown a weird tail, is being worshipped as a god, a video uploaded to the Internet showed.
The 35-year-old of Alipurduar, India, is surrounded by worshippers every day, as the 14 inch tail growing out of his back makes them think that he is a living god.
Chandre Oraon has had his tail from birth and some Hindus believe that this is a sign of the monkey god known as Hanuman.
Oraon picks tea leaves and is forced to climb trees like a monkey.
Devotees from all over the country travel to his home in the hope of touching his tail and get blessings.
As a child, Oraon was mocked, but now, he is famous.
However, his wife said that she does not like his tail. “He does not look good,” his wife said. “My parents died, and I had no choice but to marry him,” she added.
