Thai man pulls a “very long” and moving tapeworm straight from his bum

Imagine having to go to the comfort room several times already but it seems that “something” is still there and trying to get it out is some serious struggle. But, after trying several more times, you end up dragging a long, sticky tapeworm –  that’s still moving – out of your behind. (ew!)

Purely imagining that moment is just so disgusting, but that happened in real life with this 44-year-old freelance photographer named Kritsada Ratprachoom, whose bizarre tapeworm discovery is now making rounds on social media.


“I had just finished dropping my child off at school and ran some errands when I had to go No. 2. Afterward, I felt like I wasn’t finished defecating like something was left. So I got up to see what it was. Turns out there was something sticking out of my bottom,” Kritsada said to

“Tapeworm” wasn’t Kritsada’s first thought, however, having just had his appendix taken out last week,  he thought it could have been a thread remaining from the surgery.

Not until he started pulling it and realized it was sticky, stretchy and was too elastic to be just another thread. He believes it could be stretched out to be as long as 10 meters.

What’s even more shocking was when he put it down, it started moving. So naturally, Kritsada filmed and uploaded it. In the video, the long tapeworm coiled up and can be seen slowly slithering around.

In the end, Kritsada ended up flushing the creature down the toilet. He added that he was shocked because it was his first tapeworm encounter. He does not know where it might have come from.

As the post gained the attention of many, people requested Kritsada’s comment on the matter but he has not responded yet as of this article’s writing time.
