Chinese man has gecko removed from ear canal

Man went to hospital complaining of headache

A Chinese man who was suffering from a severe headache ended up having a live gecko removed from his ear.

The Huffington Post reports the man went to the hospital with severe pain and told doctors he could feel something moving inside of his ear. Upon searching, doctors saw a small gecko in the man's ear canal. They anesthetized the reptile to prevent it from crawling further into the man's head, then pulled the gecko out with pliers.

Upon retrieving the gecko, doctors discovered it was missing its tail. After a thorough search, they determined it lost its tail before it entered the man's ear.
