A marsh turtle has been discovered with a & # 39; corset waist & # 39; after growing up with an elastic band around his body.

The little turtle was found last weekend by street cleaners who worked alongside a drain in Chonburi province, in eastern Thailand.

They were fascinated by the unusual hourglass figure of the bowl and saw a small rubber band around his diaphragm that was immediately removed.

The shell of the marsh turtle was distorted by the small rubber band that is thought to have grown up around its midriff

The band is believed to have been stuck to the creature since it was a baby, with its body then growing around the band.

The street cleaner who found the turtle said he seemed healthy, apart from his strange shape.

He said: & # 39; The poor turtle must have suffered so because he was little. If we had not found it, I would not know what would have happened.

& # 39; There would be no one to remove the elastic. & # 39;

The band was removed from the swamp turtle and the street cleaner who found it said: & # 39; The poor turtle must have suffered so because it was small. If we had not found it, I would not know what would have happened & # 39;

The workers put the turtle back in the bushes next to a nearby pond.

Marsh turtles are carnivorous, eat snails, insects, frogs and fish, and although they prefer to hide from predators in their shells, they are able to deliver a ferocious bite.

There are countless species of small turtles in Thailand.
