SALINE COUNTY, ARKANSAS— A Saline, Arkansas teenager reacted a lot more bravely than most when he discovered that a 4-inch centipede had spent an evening scurrying about in his ear canal.
Grant Botti, 14, says he went to bed a few nights back with an irritating sensation in his ear. The next morning, as he pried with his fingers, he caught hold of the tail of a creepy crawler, which he then pulled out of his own ear.
The creature turned out to be a roughly 4-inch long centipede, and it was still alive when it pulled from his ear.
Grant and his mother then visited the Saline Memorial Hospital where doctors said there were some abrasions along the ear canal but no serious injuries. The doctors also said they’d removed many objects from many ears over the years, but this was the first time they had ever seen a case involving a centipede.
The family believes the teenager may have been invaded by the centipede while they were swimming in outdoors recently, but there’s no way to know for sure how the sneaky bug ended up in Grant’s ear. It could’ve happened anywhere. Are you terrified yet?
