Sometimes, after a large bong rip, I ponder over all the possible species that roam the earth and seas that we’ve yet to identify. All the bizarre creatures that escaped the classification of humans, all the otherworldly-looking beasts who have gone unchecked, all the shit nightmares are made of.
A dead mountain lion found in Idaho gave us a glimpse into the unknown as it was found with a pair of fangs growing from its FOREHEAD.
According to BBC News,
A mountain lion killed in the US state of Idaho had a set of fully formed teeth growing out of its forehead, wildlife officials say.
The Idaho Department of Fish and Game says the teeth could be the remnants of a conjoined twin which died in the womb, or possibly a kind of tumour.
Biologists in the region have never seen anything like this particular deformity before, it says.
The lion was hunted after it attacked a dog near the town of Weston, Idaho. The dog survived, but a hunter set off in pursuit and killed the big cat a few hours later.
A conservation officer checked the lion’s body, as required by law, and found the set of teeth, as well as what appeared to be a set of whiskers on the left side of the animal’s forehead.
This is why I sleep with a night light.
