A peculiar spectacle in the form of an oddly-shaped mango has recently been generating interest in Kenya.
The phenomenon, which became big news among the residents of the small village of Kitui, started when someone noticed that a mango on a nearby tree happened to have a human-like face.
Before long, word had got around, resulting in hundreds of people turning out to see it.
Footage that was later posted online showed the level of interest the unusual fruit had managed to elicit, with crowds of people queuing up in an attempt to get close enough to take photographs.
The mango itself doesn't seem particular remarkable, although it does at least have a 'face' of sorts.
Some social media users expressed puzzlement at the spectacle, while others were quick to dismiss the entire thing as little more than a case of pareidolia.
Exactly what will be done with the mango once it is picked however remains unclear.
