A Russian farmer surveying flood damage on his property stumbled upon a rather unnerving quirk of Mother Nature in the form of five rats that had gotten their tails tangled together to create what is known as a 'rat king.' Alibulat Rasulov reportedly made the discovery after heavy rains had swept over his farm in the region of Stavropol last month. In a video documenting the strange find, he can be seen pulling a plant from a puddle and examining what initially appears to be a cluster of rats stuck to the vegetation. Rasulov subsequently places the animals on the dry ground, which is when their 'royal' predicament is revealed.
