Man From Russia Spends Seven Years Transforming Himself Into Human Platypus.
Meet 26-year-old Jenya Bolotov from Russia. Jenya has spent the last seven years in the noble pursuit of becoming a platypus.
The 26-year-old, from Russia, is also the first person to get the bridge of his nose stretched.
Found only in eastern Australia and Tasmania, these animals are an interestingly strange evolutionary experiment, but for Jenya the platypus is a wonder.
Jenya started out by stretching his bottom lip and then moved on to widening his nostrils and getting some tattoos on his brow.
He first explored body piercings when he was just ten-years-old and his obsession spiraled from there.
Aged 19, he began stretching his lips to look like the egg-laying mammal.
His lips are now 58mm wide on his bottom lip and 33mm on his top lip.
