Dean Qiongxiu, 66, said she discovered the reptile clinging to the wall of her bedroom with its talons in the middle of the night.
“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,” said Mrs Duan of Suining, southwest China.

Mrs Duan said she was so scared she grabbed a shoe and beat the snake to death before preserving its body in a bottle of alcohol.
Oh, way to go, genius! You just killed the only 1-footed snake on the planet. Now evolution’s got to start ALL OVER AGAIN!
The more common mutation is a snake growing a second head like a Siamese twin.
