A woman in China has found a snake with a single leg and a clawed foot crawling across her bedroom wall.
“I woke up and heard a strange scratching sound. I turned on the light and saw this monster working its way along the wall using his claw,” 66 year old Duan Qiongxiu told the Delfi.
Duan was so terrified by the bizarre creature she quickly killed it using the heel of a shoe and then preserved it in a jar of alcohol. The 40cm long reptile is now being studied by scientists at the West Normal University in Nanchang.
