A five-month-old Chinese Boy has grown a five-inch tail and is worrying his mother.

Nuo Nuo was born with spina bifida, a rare spinal defect which leaves a gap in the spine.

Within days, his mother noticed a prominent tail beginning to form, which is still steadily increasing in size.

Nuo Nuo’s mother has urged surgeons in Changsha, China, to find a way to remove it.

But they have so far said there is nothing they can do for the child as the tail is connected to his nervous system and removing it will leave permanent damage.

The disorder occurs in 1 in every 1000 births worldwide, but a growth of this severity is rare.Daily Mail Reported
