Man Finds Mutant Rat With A Plant Growing Out Of It

An Indian farmer recently discovered a rat with a plant growing out of it's back.

 

Farmer Datar Singh, had planted soya beans on his farm earlier this year. On August 7, while inspecting his crop he discovered the rat.

It's speculated that a soya bean seed could have landed in an open wood and germinated there.

Neighbours which filmed the rat, said it looked to be in "immense pain".



Professor A. Siddiqui, head of the department of biology at a college in nearby Barnagar, said "It's a miracle. Though the plant had grown in the region near the neck, there was no brain damage."

Datar took the rat home, removed the plant, and set it free.
