Bear's giant tongue is removed by vets

1 post in this topic

An Edinburgh vet has helped remove the giant tongue of a bear in Myanmar.

Heather Bacon, of the University of Edinburgh's Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, worked in the team which carried out the operation.

The bear - called Nyan htoo, meaning "bright" - had a tongue so large that it dragged on the ground as he walked.

Nyan htoo had been suffering from a mystery illness since he was a cub. He is said to be "recovering well" after his four-hour operation.
