Woman gives birth to a lizard. Yes, really.

This midwife probably did not expect to find a baby gecko on the birthing table when she started assisting a mother in labour.

But rather than delivering a healthy newborn baby, she found herself face-to-face with a lizard. Or so she claims.

Yes, a lizard apparently oozed out of the ‘pregnant’ woman covered in mucus and blood as she was giving birth.

The midwife found the ‘live’ gecko was the only thing between the legs of the mother,Debi Nubatonis, who had all the usual signs of being eight-months pregnant.

Seems like a joke or hoax right? Well, the authorities in Indonesia are actually taking this rather seriously even going as far as launching an official investigation into the incident.

After some probing (sorry) it was suggested that the woman, already a mother of two human children, was suffering from pseudocyesis, or phantom pregnancy, with an empty womb.

A doctor, the Chief Medical Officer of nearby Kupang City, Indonesia, gave this rather sobering conclusion.

‘So the gecko coming out is probably some kind of hoax.

‘Childbirth of another species has never been reported in science.’
