Babies are fascinated with tails for some reason. There’s not a baby alive that doesn’t do like that little fellow above and go for an animal’s tail. They’re the perfect pacifier, for whatever reason. However, a baby in China doesn’t need a pet around to get her tail fix. She’s got a tail of her own! Hong Hong, a 4-month-old girl, recently underwent surgery to remove a five-inch tail.
She was born with the tail, but newborns are generally fragile, and doctors wanted to wait and see if the tail would shrink or fall off as she grew. It did neither. In fact, the tail, which is connected to her spinal column via a fatty tumor, actually doubled in length and showed no signs of slowing down! The removal was successful and there were no complications, though doctors are unsure as to whether or not she’ll need future surgery.
Meanwhile in America, Wolfie Blackheart is making plans to get a tail surgically added to her rear end.
